    Q10..Activity 8. Reading and understanding signs and symbols.

    If Carl can read then he won't score any points in this descriptor.

    This activity considers the claimant’s ability to read and understand written or printed information in the person’s native language. To be considered able to read, claimants must be able to see the information – accessing information via Braille is not considered as reading for this activity.

    If the claimant cannot read, this must be as a direct result of their health condition or impairment e.g. visual impairment, cognitive impairment, learning disability. Illiteracy or lack of familiarity with written English are not health conditions and should not be considered, except where they arise as a consequence of a sensory or cognitive impairment.


    The ability to remember and retain information is not within the scope of this activity.
