DIY Accessibility Brunch ‘n’ Learn: Mental Health & Accessibility

February 4, 2019

Join the Accessibility Ambassadors on Thursday, February 28 for a presentation and discussion about mental health issues and digital accessibility by Kim Doberstein from OIT Application Development.

A substantial portion of our users experience mental health issues, yet the subject rarely comes up in digital accessibility discussions. Doberstein will cover common mental health diagnoses, as well as design principles and WCAG success criteria that assist users with mental health issues.

Please note: Neither laptops nor brunch will be provided as part of this event; please BYO.
