Summary:

The advancement of technology has facilitated access to information rapidly, making material more widely available than ever; however, in the rush to embrace new means of instruction and information sharing, accessibility needs may have been overlooked. In 1996, the U.S. Department of Justice clarified that the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements apply to all programs offered on the internet, which include all educational digital materials for clients, patients, students, and the general public, as well as all digital professional conference materials. This means that web page materials, and formalized online courses and programs, must be made available to qualified individuals with disabilities. Healthcare or education professionals who are producing digital materials must be aware of the regulations, as well as the electronic resources available to create and modify these documents, to ensure that all materials are in compliance with the ADA.

Objectives:

The goal of this educational course for occupational therapists, dietitians, physical therapists, pharmacists, fitness professionals, health educators, physicians, radiologic technologists, social workers, and speech-language/audiology professionals is to provide them with up-to-date information related to the accessibility of digital materials for individuals with disabilities.
 
After taking this course, you should be able to:
  • Explain legal requirements for accessibility of digital materials.
  • Describe how to achieve accessibility through the modification or creation of digital materials.
  • Identify resources to facilitate the creation of accessible digital materials.
