I know that it's proper to spell out the term and show the acronym in an document upon its first use. After that, one should use the acronym. However, I struggle with continuously simply using acronyms as to the reader, the language quickly becomes cluttered with numerous and unfamiliar letters. For example, in a recent document, if I strictly followed the rule (where the acronyms have already been defined), it could have read:
Youth in FF may be eligible for a full range of IL services. Both LCPAs and LDSS can provide supervision of ILAs. Youth may be eligible for IL but severely ID/DD and unable to attain a GED, or vocational training, although ETV are available.
I cannot envision imposing multiple sentences like those on a reader. Isn't there any flexibility with this rule? Thank you!
