People with Disabilities

Ease of access to all our resources is top priority when creating innovative online parenting solutions. Here, at OnlineParentingPrograms.com, we provide families with high quality information that also meets specific standards provided by the American Disabilities Act (ADA) and The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0).

Why is ADA/WCAG compliance important

WCAG Compliant

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 out of 4 adults in the United States has some type of disability (CDC.gov - 2020). Therefore, our mission to implement accessible content for parents and families becomes that much more important. We take pride in offering equal opportunities for all of our families or parents visiting our website, as well as taking extra care and protection of users with disabilities.

We are mindful of those having visual, speech or hearing impairments and the need for screen readers or assistive technology, such as text to speech and have performed necessary testing to ensure a smooth and easy web browsing. From general website design, colors, contrasts and fonts used, to all of our online courses and resources, every piece of information found on our platform exceeds all accessibility requirements.

WCAG Disability Cover

Among all of our website features that cater to people with disabilities, here are some to best exemplify the user-friendly features found on our website:

  • We provide “alt tags” for all of our images, audio and video content, allowing users with disabilities to read or hear alternative descriptions of such files
  • We offer text transcripts for audio and video files, making it easier for people with hearing impairment to access them
  • We make the website language clear, by specifying it in the header code
  • We optimize our content to become compatible with user agents like assistive technologies, making it easy to be interpreted by various platforms or devices.

Top level of compliance with ADA/WCAG

Through rigorous testing, OnlineParentingPrograms.com has met the stringent requirements to achieve the distinguished “Title III” ADA mandates for websites viewed as “places of public accommodation”.

OnlineParentingPrograms.com has also achieved a WCAG 2.0 Level AAA compliance rating, the most demanding level of the WCAG, which comprises 38 requirements (success criterion) as published through.

Our continuous commitment to those with disabilities

While celebrating our differences, we strive to offer equal access to all online content. In order to create an inclusive user experience, our team works hard to allow full participation in our classes, offering the right amount of technical support and customized features as identified above.

With the rise in families with disabilities accessing technology, it becomes paramount for us to continuously research and identify ways in which to best overcome obstacles, as we are committed to be considerate to those with disabilities.
