Information Accessibility Design & Policy (IADP) Professional Development Certificate Available Online at University of Illinois Urbana Champaign

Three important questions for your organization:

1.      Are your websites and instructional materials designed to be accessible?

2.      Are you aware of state and federal requirements for ensuring equal access by people with disabilities to your programs and services?

3.      Are your instructors and digital development teams prepared to minimize barriers and maximize access to digital information for your clients?

This spring, the College of Applied Health Sciences<http://ahs.illinois.edu/> at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will launch a fully-online, three-course professional certificate in Information Accessibility Design and Policy (IADP.) From hands-on developers to compliance officers, anyone responsible for making web content findable, useable and accessible for persons with disabilities can learn how to meet accessibility mandates and exceed end-user expectations. This program is the only one if its kind in the U.S. and one of only of a few in the world.

IADP Courses will cover:

*        Principles of accessible information architecture and universal design information technologies used in educational, business, healthcare, and employment settings.

*        Federal and state legal requirements for providing equal access to information technologies to protect the civil rights of people with disabilities.

*        Information technology accessibility standards, design techniques that enable adherence to those standards, and tools that support validation and evidence of   compliance to those standards.
