Description

Students, families, educators at all levels and other service providers who are new to accessible educational materials (AEM) and accessible technologies have many questions about what “accessibility” means. How do you know if something is accessible and to whom is it accessible? This session will include a discussion of basic information about accessibility and what that means to learners with disabilities. Topics in this introductory webinar will include legal issues, a decision-making process, and how to locate and use supporting resources on the AEM Center website.
