Supporting Online Learning Students with Disabilities

Great Reads!

Although blindness is not the most prevalent disability for which we provide accessibility, this video gives a great perspective on the frustrations that learners with disabilities can face while trying to keep pace in an inaccessible learning environment. The video highlights why accommodation is no longer enough to ensure educational equity for all learners, and why we have professional, ethical, and legal responsibilities to continue developing awareness of the difficulties some learners face, and increase the accessibility of lessons in response to these difficulties, in both physical and virtual learning environments.
