Legislation, Disabilities and Educational Web Sites


The talk will outline implications of new disability legislation and use case studies to illustrate possible legislative outcomes for those involved in providing Web-based material both at a strategic and practitioner level.

In addition the session will look at UK approaches to the legislation, focusing on case studies from the UK education sector. A range of resources that support staff in meeting the needs of students with disabilities will also be highlighted.

However, as well as bringing new pressures to bear on institutional staff, side effects of the legislation may create opportunities and these will be explored during the talk.
