  •  ADA (the Americans with Disabilities Act), IDEA (the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act), and the Rehabilitation Act have outlined stipulations for ensuring equitable access to the available services, facilities, and programs in educational and employment settings (Beekman and Beekman 419; http://www.compuaccess.com/ada_guide.htm). With the exception of implant devices, assistive technology may include items, services, equipment, or product systems, whether altered or unaltered, which serve to support, improve, sustain, or increase the functional abilities of disabled persons (http://idea.ed.gov/part- c/statutes?q=assistive+technology#statute-58). LIS 557 (USM): 4 March 2012 3
  • LIS 557 (USM): 4 March 2012 ‹#›
  •  Use of any technology requires that librarians remain cognizant of several critical factors including:  patron safety and privacy;  legal and ethical use;  staff/faculty training;  library and institutional goals; and  financial resources (Stripling 87-9, 96-7). LIS 557 (USM): 4 March 2012 5
  •  TheADA and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 have defined a disability as any mental or physical impairment which significantly impedes major life activities. Examples are:  sensory functions;  learning;  pertinent bodily processes;  communication;  motor activities/abilities; and  self-care (http://www.ada.gov/pubs/adastatute08.htm#12102; http://www2.ed.gov/policy/speced/reg/narrative.html). LIS 557 (USM): 4 March 2012 6
  •  IDEA adds that students with disabilities may have or exhibit:  emotional disturbances;  autistic behaviors;  traumatic injuries; and  social/cognitive/emotional delays (http://www.disabled- world.com/disability/accessibility/pictures.ph; http://idea.ed.gov/part- c/statutes?q=assistive+technology#statute- 58). LIS 557 (USM): 4 March 2012 7
  •  Assistive (also known as adaptive or inclusive) technology requires planning for access on several dimensions:  physical space design;  relevant hardware and software; and  competent and informed library professionals (http://www.washington.edu/doit/Faculty/Strategies/Academic/Adaptive/; http://www.washington.edu/doit/UA/PRESENT/libres.html#L5). LIS 557 (USM): 4 March 2012 8
  •  Assistive technology isrelevant for disabilities which have a range of physical and/or psychological origins. * PHYSICAL * PSYCHOLOGICAL/MENTAL - visual - learning disability - aural - mobility/motor - oral (http://www.washington.edu/doit/Faculty/Strategies/Academic/Adaptive/) LIS 557 (USM): 4 March 2012 9

  •  Ability diversities and legal stipulations have made universal Web design an absolute necessity. Planning for diverse needs underlies the process which, according to the World Wide Web Consortium, should also consider:  organized, consistent page designs;  relevant, thoughtfully accessible graphic and audio features;  alternative content such as applets, databases, forms, or frames; and  context-sensitive, accessibility assuredness tools (http://www.washington.edu/doit/Brochures/Technology/universal.design.html).
