Do you notice your employee has difficulties with work instructions? Or that your patient makes mistakes with his/her drug intake? Is a client at your job centre reluctant to find vacancies themselves? Or is your customer always late with returning his/her library books? Does a social security recipient always call after you’ve sent them a letter? In these instances it may be that reading skills play a role. To get a better grasp of whether this is indeed the case and as such raise awareness of the scope and effect of literacy difficulties, ELINET’s Literacy Screener comes in handy.
