Hi Did you know that People First of NZ has produced an Easy-Read version of a Will and Easy-Read resource to go with it. 

A great resource for people seeking to document their wishes regarding their assets before they become unable to do so.  Well designed for people with comprehension and communication challenges. 

See People First website for this and other useful Easy-Read resources
