Abstract/ Summary

Students arrive in classrooms with a variety of skills, interests and needs. For many learners, the typical curriculum—including instructional methods, classroom materials, and assessments of knowledge—may contain barriers to educational participation and achievement. Students who are unable to access print materials face particular challenges. Accessible instructional materials reduce barriers and provide rich supports for learning. By using accessible instructional materials, educators enable all learners to gain knowledge, skills and enthusiasm for learning.
