Accessibility

The Family Resource Center for Disabilities and Special Needs is committed to providing access to our web pages for individuals with disabilities. The content of this site has been tested for usability and accessibility using a combination of standards-based, automated procedures and accepted heuristic methods. All web pages conform to Section 508 of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Downloadable documents have been made as accessible as possible. Fully accessible versions of individual documents can be supplied on an as-needed basis.

To meet this commitment, we will comply with the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. Section 508 requires that individuals with disabilities, who are members of the public seeking information or services from us, have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to that provided to the public who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on us.

Adobe Acrobat

Many links on the this website reference files which exist in a portable document format (PDF). In most cases, these links will be tagged with (PDF) after them. PDF files can be opened using either Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader (available for free).

This software does two things:

  1. The software installs a plug-in for your internet browser so you can view PDFs online while connected to the internet;
  2. The software also installs Adobe Reader, which will allow you to read any PDF file on your computer, whether or not you are online.

The portable document format (PDF) is the best for some documents, which, due to its size, can be more effectively read by downloading and/or printing instead of reading online (though you can read these online if you wish).
