Neurodiversity in the Workplace
A Collaborative National Conference

Marriott Marquis, Washington, DC

The below guidelines are provided to aid you in the creation and on-site presentation of your content to ensure it is accessible by all attendees before, during, and after the conference.
Why is presentation accessibility important?
Attendees come from all different backgrounds and have a variety of different abilities, some of which are obvious and some which are not. Presentations with lots of visuals, small text, or complex charts may not be able to be understood by an attendee who is blind or has low vision or is color blind. Presentations that use a lot of acronyms or are packed with information may not be able to be understood by someone with a limited understanding of English or who needs a slower pace. Presentations that use uncaptioned videos may not be able to be understood by someone who is deaf or hard of hearing. A little planning can ensure all attendees are able to understand and access the content of your presentation.
