Making Social Media Accessible for People with Disabilities
Social media platforms are great tools for sharing information directly with consumers, including COVID-19 guidance that people can use to protect themselves, their families, households, and their communities. However, if social media content is not accessible or does not take the needs of people with disabilities in mind, then access to important information is missed. In this webinar, skilled users of social media with accessibility expertise will discuss the impact of using social media to reach a variety of audiences within the disability community. Previous research has suggested that these social media platforms may have a greater likelihood of being used to share vital health information related to COVID-19. Presenters will also demonstrate how to make shared information more accessible on frequently used platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, and TikTok to reach the largest possible number of people.

Participants will be eligible for CEUs from the AAC Institute and CRCs from the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC).

Webinars are presented through Zoom. Captions and American Sign Language will be available. All webinars are recorded and the archive, transcript, accessible presentation, as well as additional handouts will be made available within one week of the live webinar.

Participants will receive the Zoom link one hour before the live webinar.
