What Families Need To Know About Accessible Instructional Materials

Program Description

Maine AIM WebinarsRecorded: August 26, 2015 – Does your child have trouble reading learning materials, such as textbooks, workbooks, trade books, or newsprint? Is this difficulty caused by a learning, physical, or visual disability? Accessible Instructional Materials (AIM) may help. These are books and other learning materials provided in a different format, such as digital text, audio, large print, and braille.

We invited parents around the state to join in an on-line, evening “get-together” to discuss AIM and students with disabilities. The following questions were addressed:

  • What do I need to know about AIM?
  • What do I do if I think my child needs AIM?
  • How is AIM provided to students?
  • What resources are available that I can share with my child’s educational team?
