Field Work

"Students with disabilities need access to fieldwork experiences that are part of coursework or program requirements. Educators who require fieldwork experiences need to make sure that fieldwork sites, supplementary materials, and assignments are accessible to students with a range of hearing, visual, health, mobility, psychiatric, and learning impairments." Information regarding Universal Design, accommodation strategies, rights and responsibilities, resources, presentations, and a quick check of your understanding is also provided.

"We cannot afford to let the issue of disabilities be simply an afterthought. We have a unique opportunity now, as industry pours billions of dollars into upgrading the communications infrastructure, to make sure that people with disabilities are not left behind. Now is the time. Accessibility of services and products for all Americans has got to be a design feature, not an add-on."
