Children and parents with disabilities deserve equal access and inclusion to all of a school and districts content and information. The U.S. Department of Education (ED). Section 504 provides: “No otherwise qualified individual with a disability in the United States . . . shall, solely by reason of her or his disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance . . . .”
Helping those with disabilities gain equal access to your websites content and information is morally and ethically, and lawfully correct. Adally is excited to be your partner regarding accessibility and inclusion to all those that seek it.
