Mr O'Ríordáin believes the complex language used is unnecessary.
He said: "What we're trying to do is to ensure that people how are adult learners, who have had literacy difficulties in their past - we can learn from them and we can create a society which is conscious of people with literacy difficulties and challenges.
"And that those people who when they are trying to access public services are not at a disadvantage.
"I think an awful lot of the forms that are used, a lot of the publications, are unnecessarily difficult and unnecessarily complex."
