A concise explanation from the University of Minnesota of the major benefits of accessible design in an educational setting.
It is important to ensure your program’s in-person and/or virtual classroom instruction (sometimes known as related technical instruction, or RTI) is accessible. Creating inclusive classroom instruction will allow all of your apprentices to transition to the next phase, on-the-job training, with the knowledge they need to succeed.
