Meeting the challenge of inclusion in education.
Ensure that all students have access to the curriculum.
As the public education sector strives to provide an equal and inclusive learning experience for all students, they face many challenges in ensuring compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). From K-12 to higher education, student disability rates are rising, making it more difficult for schools to provide the necessary accommodations and resources. In addition, many educators are not adequately trained to best support students with disabilities, leading to further barriers in the learning process.
In recent years, there has been an increased focus on accessibility goals and initiatives in public education. One of the most important goals is to ensure that all students have access to the curriculum. Another goal is to promote social inclusion among all students, which requires accessibility for all students to participate in extracurricular activities and social events.
Creating an inclusive environment where all students feel accepted and valued is vitally important.
There’s an answer to all of these challenges: The BlueDAG WayTM.
