Project Details

The National Center on Disability and Access to Education (NCDAE) seeks to improve education for all by promoting accessibility in electronically-mediated education. Technology can be harnessed to improve educational access and practice. However when education is delivered electronically it is common that it is not accessible to people with disabilities. Also, educators often need assistance in identifying and using available tools to make electronic information accessible.

Project Focus
The NCDAE monitors and promotes electronically-mediated distance education policies and practices that enhance the lives of people with disabilities and their families.

The NCDAE currently focuses on (1) creating tools to make distance education accessible; (2) policy research and analysis to further a national agenda to promote universal access in distance education; and (3) providing training and technical assistance to assist educators with electronic access. In our partnership with WebAIM we provide direct services to clients in education settings.
