Accessible Educational Materials
Unmodified materials can be a barrier to the learning of students with a visual impairment. At Connect Design we provide accessible educational materials by modifying resources to meet the needs of students with visual impairments. This can include resizing resources including charts and diagrams or creating a version in braille, while maintaining the quality of the original document.
This enables these students to access the same information as their peers without compromising on the rigour of the skills being assessed.
A network of Connect Design approved modifiers work closely with our in-house team to supply awarding organisations with high quality mark-up and modifications.
This ensures that we maintain the integrity of an assessment while allowing a candidate to access the information.
We are able to adapt graphs and diagrams, making them user friendly for students with a visual impairment. We can adapt the colours and shading used, change sizes and layouts, provide shapes and models, make 3D diagrams two dimensional and create alternative text for an accessible PDF.
Our team of specialist teachers are trained in providing document modification services for students with impairments and learning difficulties.
