National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard (NIMAS)

NIMAS is a technical standard used by publishers to produce source files in multiple specialized formats for students with print disabilities. At the end of 2004, President George Bush signed into law the reauthorized Individualized with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  This statute addressed the timely delivery of print textbooks to school-age students with print disabilities in specialized formats including braille, large print, digital text, and audio.

CISAM’s role is to assist school personnel in locating accessible educational materials (AEM) for eligible Ohio students with print disabilities.
