Is Your Higher Education Institution Accessible for All?

Describes how an inclusive classroom can get schools over the bridge to universal accessibility. Students with disabilities have all the intellectual tools they need to thrive in higher education. Yet too many give up because of lack of accommodations which can create unnecessary barriers. In many instances lack of accommodations can create gaps in their learning experiences which can hinder them even more in their education. Even if the necessary accommodations are not currently available, higher education professionals can do more to improve accessibility for students with disabilities. One way to start is adopting a more inclusive approach to pedagogy and curriculum design.
