Abstract Web-based educational resources for families in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) with low health literacy were developed and implemented as prototype web pages using Macromedia Dreamweaver MX. The user interface was designed for a touch-screen platform with voice-recorded messages to incorporate parentsí varying literacy levels and computer experience. Cognitive load theory was used to guide the organization and presentation of information. The text was translated to a 6th grade reading level by Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level, MS Word.
