Welcome to AIM Delaware!
AIM Delaware is a new project to ensure that children with print disabilities in Delaware public schools have access to accessible instructional materials (AIM). It is funded by the Delaware Department of Education (DOE). Information and Resources for the project will appear here as they are developed. In the meantime, we hope the following links are helpful.
What are Accessible Instructional Materials?
Accessible Instructional Materials (AIM) are learning materials that have been converted into one or more specialized formats for use by students with print disabilities. They include formats such as large print, audio, and Braille.
What is a print disability?
A print disability is any condition that prevents a student from using materials as they are presented on a physical page. There are many conditions that might make it difficult to use such materials, for example blindness and other visual disabilities, the inability to hold the book or turn pages, or the inability to focus on the content because of the way it is presented.
