Thank you for requesting EASI's pamphlet on science and math accessibility. 
It will be attached to this email.

While providing access for students with disabilities to the fields of math 
and science are somewhat more complex and difficult than providing
accessibility to other fields, we want to encourage you to consider 
providing a system-wide accessible institution.  In September EASI's online
course, Barrier-free Information Technology provides a thorough overview of 
what is required to create the most level learning space in history
for students with disabilities.  Anyone who registers for the September 
Barrier-free Information Technology course will get a special bonus.  It
 is a 52-minute narrated PowerPoint presentation of the steps need to 
establish the policies and procedures to guarantee your institution will
achieve this goal.  Patching accessibility together later is what is hard 
and expensive.  Doing it from the beginning is what works.

Below is a link for you to read the full syllabus and register online:
