Everyone deserves a chance at a good education. Unfortunately for those with a wide range of disabilities there is a struggle to keep up and create makeshift solutions to level the playing field.
A young person, in their late teens and early twenties shouldn’t have to worry about how they are going to access websites, applications, peripherals and other learning materials. Regardless of their ability they should be enjoying the world of college to the best of their ability. They should be learning new things and exploring subject matter that they want to study.
More than 6,000,000 students are currently covered by the Individuals With Disabilities Act (IDEA). Those student may have a visual, auditory, cognitive, or motor skills disability. Many have been dealing with these things their entire lives. As they head into college they want as much independence as their peers have, within their means, and shouldn’t be stifled by accessibility issues with learning technology.
