Color-coded Manuals, Outlines, and Maps

Individuals with reading deficits may have difficulty reading manuals, outlines, or maps due to the complicated structure of the material and the size/type of font used in lettering. Color-coding this material can be helpful to people with learning disabilities. This accommodation improves efficiency, provides easy access to information, increases productivity, and makes information finding a simpler task. Ways to color-code include: highlighting, using a copy machine to copy information on to colored paper, using post-it notes and colored tabs.
