We are pleased to announce the launch of the official Web site <http://www2.ed.gov/about/bdscomm/list/aim/index.html> for the Advisory Commission on Accessible Instructional Materials in Postsecondary Education for Students with Disabilities.
The Commission, established by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, has brought together government leaders, representatives from the publishing industry, individuals with print disabilities, representatives from two- and four-year institutions of higher education and leaders in accessible technology. The Commission will study the current state of accessible materials for students with disabilities in postsecondary education and make recommendations to the U.S. Congress for improving access to and the distribution of instructional materials in accessible formats. This is the first commission in history charged with examining accessible instructional materials for postsecondary students with disabilities.
This Web site <http://www2.ed.gov/about/bdscomm/list/aim/index.html> showcases the work of the Commission, and provides information on Commission meeting schedules and documents, members, authorizing legislation, resources and contact information. The Commission welcomes any questions or public commentary and can be contacted at AIMCommission at ed.gov.
