Course Description :
The advancement of technology has facilitated access to information rapidly, making the 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.
Course Objectives :
The goal of this digital materials accessibility module is to provide occupational therapists, dietitians, fitness professionals, health educators, pharmacists, physical therapists, physicians, radiologic technologists, and social workers with up-to-date information related to accessibility of digital materials for people with disabilities.

• Identify and understand recent additions to current laws related to the accessibility of digital materials

• Identify resources to facilitate the creation of accessible digital materials
