Autism Initiatives recognises and values the provision of information on this website in a format which is accessible to all, regardless of ability or disability.

 

Our policy

To ensure that this happens, we have programmed our website following web standards and accessibility guidelines. The site is developed using valid HTML and cascading style sheets (CSS).

We try to maintain WAI Level A accessibility

We strive to achieve and maintain levels of accessibility that conform to the AA standard.

What is an accessible website?

An accessible site is one that accommodates the full range of users. Designing for accessibility therefore means accepting that, for online information, there is:

  • no standard information user, and,
  • no standard device for browsing information

An accessible website does not exclude anybody due to:

  • their abilities, or
  • the method they choose to access the web

Accessible websites prioritise clear content, structure and ease of navigation over frilly aspects of design, however they also need not be visually unattractive, nor are they prevented from using the latest web technologies, provided that all information is still accessible to users.
