A Student in My Class Needs "Alternate Format." What Does that Mean? 


Presenter: Susan Kelmer

Organization: University of Colorado 

Role: Alternate Format Access Coordinator

Track: General Presentation

Topic: Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

Level: For Mere Mortals


Abstract: You are notified that a student in your class needs "alternate format" because of a print disability. What does that mean, and how do you go about providing it for the student? I will present information on best practices along with some tips, tricks, and tools to help you get your student what s/he needs.


Bio: Ms. Kelmer has spent 15 years working as an IT technician with an emphasis on assistive technology and alternate format. She has published several working manuals and presented at multiple conferences on topics ranging from working with students with print disabilities to the production of alternate format for classroom and student use. Currently, she works with the Disability Services office at the University of Colorado, where she manages the alternate format process and production, as well as overseeing an assistive technology lab for students with disabilities.


Description: Presentation will include a definition of what a print disability is, as well as what "alternate format means." Detailed information about how to provide alternate format, covering best practices along with some practical tools, will be presented, and participants will also have a chance to view accessible documents as well as getting to see/feel tactile materials as well.
