Harford Site - Accessibility for Projects: What You Need to Know

This presentation will be submitted for 1 PDU in Strategic and Business Management
This presentation will help you prepare your project for incorporating accessibility requirements. These requirements come from the American Disabilities Act, Section 508, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and the new Section 508 Refresh update to the law coming this January 2018. All federal projects and federal contracts require accessibility in addition to many states and cities. You will become familiar with the current requirements, the new expanded requirements and how to incorporate those into any size project. The essential focus is on any website or application user interface, and electronic documents. You will learn how to set priorities for your resources to accomplish this task, and this presentation will assist you in organizing an efficient effort. 
Ed Thrush has 15 years in Section 508 accessibility and 20 years total in IT. In both fields he has generated a wealth of guides and training material. Mr Thrush got his start building IT systems for several years and then moved into application development and became a webmaster. Starting early on when accessibility was first incorporated, Mr. Thrush saw the need for addressing the new requirements for different audiences: non-technical executives, project managers, and the developers. The ability to communicate the technical requirements to allow the disabled to access their applications, websites, and electronic documents to different audiences is what makes Ed Thrush's approach unique.
