While I am looking at making my site a disability friendly as possible, this post focuses on autism. Autism is much more common than people think, effecting 1 in 100 people, I would like my site be effeciently used by children effected by autism too. Asking experts in caring for children with autism I was able to get some fantastic advice for my website. Below are the key points I need to take note of.
Relate words to pictures as it is easier to understand.
Feedback is vital for the user to understand and learn effectively. The site should identify and fix their learning mistake.
Simple navigation is vital and it should include images in the navigation. Icons are a viable option to link.
If the site is to be used within the educational sector, it needs to be 508 compliant.
