NEW YORK, March 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced that Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) -compliant electronic versions of its parent involvement publications are now available as part of its Resources for Educators offerings.
Resources for Educators publications are offered to Pre-K–12 education professionals – including school administrators, teachers, reading specialists, parent involvement coordinators, and federal program administrators – to provide help and support to the families they serve.
As of January 18, new federal ADA standards ADA require all schools receiving federal funds to make their website materials ADA-compliant and ensure that all individuals can access them.
