Many students have difficulty reading and using standard print materials. Educators who work with these students and their families have many questions about how accessible instructional materials (AIM) might assist students with accessing the curriculum. This module will address basic foundational issues related to AIM and present the AIM Navigator - a tool that can be used to facilitate the selection and implementation of accessible instructional materials. This module was developed in partnership with the National Center on Accessible Instructional Materials (AIM Center) and the Texas Assistive Technology Network (TATN).
