Accessible Instructional Materials
As states and districts increasingly move toward the use of digital instructional materials, it is critically important that those acquiring materials understand and require that accessibility features be designed into those materials. The use accessible materials and inclusive technology can do much to ensure that ALL students have the opportunity for full educational participipation and achievement.
I agree that AIM will be critical as our educators meet the needs of all learners. We can no longer hold teaching differently for our special education students when these methods and materials will benefit all.

I highly recommend Accessible Instructional Materials to be one of the Keynotes. In the past NECC had very limited information and workshops relating to accessibility to the timing is perfect! Thanks for proposing this session. Best of luck! Deb
