Accessible instruction is every educator’s responsibility

What did your students do today? Read a textbook or a chapter? Take a pop quiz?

Imagine you are given a reading assignment or told to take out a blank sheet of paper for a quiz—but are physically unable to flip the page of a book or handle a pencil.

Every educator impacts students, but are they able to effectively reach ALL their students? Anyone working with disabled students who fails to provide accessible instruction and materials is inadvertently building barriers to learning.

Do your part to help all students learn. Take the Accessible Instruction Pledge.
