The Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND) is committed to the provision of services for and with individuals with disabilities, their families and communities. With support from the Wyoming Department of Education, Special Programs Division and WIND Assistive Technology Resources (WATR) the NIMAS Clearinghouse has been established at WIND to support blind and other students with print disabilities through the provision of accessible textbooks and core curriculum materials.
Eligibility for services is coordinated through the Special Programs Division of the Department of Education and requires medical documentation that supports a print disability. For information regarding eligibility, contact Leslie Bechtel Van Orman in Riverton, Wyoming (307) 857-9267 or send E-mail to email@example.com.
Our goal in seeking and providing alternate format textbooks and curriculum resources is to assist individual school districts in meeting the unique learning needs of every student. Among the options available to students are braille, large print, DAISY books, audio files, and e-text files. Within our intent to identify or process alternate format resources is the promise to use all reasonable means to deliver the accessible textbook to the student at the same time as the other students receive their materials.
