The National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard (NIMAS): State Implementation Update. inForum
Etemad, Pontea; Burdette, Paula
Project Forum
The National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard (NIMAS) was added to the Individuals with Disabilities Act in 2004. The purpose of this standard is to provide guidance to schools to ensure that students with print disabilities have access to the general education curriculum through specially adapted print materials. In 2007, Project Forum surveyed states to determine how states were implementing these standards. The current document is an update of that information. Project Forum at the National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE) completed this document as part of its cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP). (Contains 3 footnotes.)
