Multi-modal presentations have been shown to be effective in helping people with learning disabilities understand information.
This conference is a forum for disseminating the results of innovative scientific research that is being conducted to investigate computer technologies and their use by persons with disabilities. This conference also serves as a forum for sharing state-of-the-art design and development efforts that are aimed at creating assistive systems for persons with disabilities.
