Description

Whether you're preparing to be a general or special educator, the students of your future will need accessible educational materials (AEM), a provision of IDEA 2004. In this webinar, you'll learn what accessibility means, who needs AEM, and how AEM is provided to learners. Most importantly, we'll share strategies for how you can start preparing now to be AEM ready for your first class of learners.
