Why Earn Your Accessibility and Advocacy Degree at Lipscomb University?
The Americans with Disabilities Act mandates inclusive opportunities at all levels of education and in all environments. One of the most recent advances in accessibility is the use of assistive technology to support meaningful access in all areas. However, there are currently a limited number of programs available that provide training in assistive technology.
Also, many professionals working with individuals with disabilities need more exposure to the tools available and the impact they could have on educational outcomes. Lipscomb’s Accessibility and Advocacy master’s degree provides that exposure.
