Focusing on Accessibility for Individuals
What do we mean when we say "accessibility"? Accessibility is about providing access to information for everyone, regardless of age or ability, so that each individual can realize their full potential. Accessibility professionals are subject matter experts who understand the need for inclusion and address these needs through technology. They have knowledge of accessibility requirements and technology implementation guidelines to provide accessible solutions.
The International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP) is a membership-based organization for individuals and organizations that are focused on accessibility or are in the process of building their accessibility skills and strategies. The objective of this association is to help accessibility professionals develop and advance their careers and to help organizations integrate accessibility into their products and infrastructure. The IAAP will provide a place for accessibility professionals around the world to gather, share experiences and enrich their knowledge of accessibility.
What will make our profession strong is having you as a member. Regardless of your knowledge level in accessibility, we all play a role in growing this profession. Help guide us to being a great professional association serving our diverse needs.
