Our mission at ADHDadvisor.org is to provide accessible and affordable ADHD treatment and healthcare to everyone. We are serious about the ethical and legal responsibilities that come with this mission.
What do we mean by “accessibility and inclusion”?Accessibility guidelinesIt is important to us to meet international standards for web content accessibility. The standards below apply to the ADHDadvisor.org website and cover design, content, and functionality.Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define three levels of conformance. Each demonstrates an increasing level of accessibility for anyone with disabilities:
We follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) by meeting WCAG 2.1 level A-AA requirements. Where possible, we’ve applied level AAA criteria.
ADHDadvisor.org is also committed to making its electronic and information technologies accessible to individuals with disabilities by meeting Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (28 U.S.C. 794d), as amended in 1998. Section 508 is a federal law that requires agencies to provide individuals with disabilities equal access to electronic information and data comparable to those who do not have disabilities unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency. The Section 508 standards are the technical requirements and criteria that are used to measure conformance within this law. More information on Section 508 and the technical standards can be found at www.section 508.gov. This webpage provides resources about ADHDadvisor.org’s policies, accessibility requirements and the formal complaints process, in addition to other accessibility resources.
