Abstract

Adopting basic principles of inclusive design for education will address many of the challenges faced by disabled students, including visually impaired individuals. We discuss Power Point use and show one method of making graphs and other visuals accessible to visually impaired students. Teaching laboratories remain a distinguishing feature in the study of the chemical sciences. In this presentation we show just one approach that can be easily adapted for many experiments to assist visually impaired individuals. We call on the community to create a toolbox of resources, adjustments and initiatives that can be readily shared globally to promote inclusive teaching of the chemical sciences.
