Accessible educational materials, or AEM, are materials that are designed or converted in a way that makes them usable across the widest range of student variability regardless of format (print, digital, graphic, audio and video). IDEA (the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) specifically focuses on accessible formats of print instructional materials. In relation to IDEA the term AEM refers to print instructional materials that have been transformed into the specialized formats of braille, large print, audio, or digital text.
