There are a number of valuable resources about making math accessible available on the web. Here are a few places to look:

- The Accessibility Solutions area of the Design Science website [1] includes a number of articles on making math content accessible to students with disabilities, and also provides background on math accessibility policy issues.
- For guidelines on providing access to scientific and mathematical expressions for all users with disabilities, see Accessible Digital Media Guidelines [2] available on the National Center on Accessible Media [3] website.

For suggestions on math accommodations and teaching strategies, consult some of the following online articles:

- Accommodating Math Students with Learning Disabilities [4] by Rochelle Kenyon.
- Mathematics Strategy Instruction for Middle School Students with Learning Disabilities [5] by Dr. Joseph Gagnon and Dr. Paula Maccini.
- Mathematics for Students with Learning Disabilities from Language-Minority Backgrounds: Recommendations for Teaching [6] by Diane Torres Raborn.

For more information on this topic, consult the following DO-IT Knowledge Base articles Why is accessible math important? [7] and Are there commercial products designed to make math accessible to students with disabilities? [8]
