"Equality, Accommodation, Accessibility". In de Bie, A., & Brown, K. (2017), Forward with FLEXibility: A teaching and learning resource on accessibility, retrieved from https://flexforward.pressbooks.com/chapter/accessible-education/
Accessibility means leveling the playing field for everyone. In the examples above, you can see three ways of participating in a classroom:
In education, accessibility means that the way we teach, the content we cover, and the systems students use to access it should work for everyone. It means that our practices and resources should work for everyone "out of the box". It means shifting our thinking, and the way we work, so everyone can participate.
Accessibility means creating learning spaces where disabilities, both disclosed and hidden, are never a barrier to full participation in learning.
