100 Days of A11y

Inspired by Amy Carney’s 100 Days of A11y blog, I have decided to blog my way through the CPACC body of knowledge as I study to become a Certified Professional in Accessibility Core Competencies (CPACC). I plan to write and publish new blog posts once or twice a week as I study for the CPACC exam.

  1. What is CPACC and What Am I Doing?
  2. Let’s Disambiguate Some Terms
  3. Theoretical Models of Disability
  4. General Types of Disabilities

Resources
