TESTIMONIALS

The DisabilityEtiquette Course sets out an approachable degree of information that I wish, was taught to every college freshman studying Arts & Humanities, or HR! Memorable stories with grassroots appeal and resources I can use. The Digital Accessibility section was a bonus that I didn’t even expect!
