Add (FPC) for People with Cognitive Disabilities

Add Functional Performance Criteria (FPC) for people with cognitive disabilities. Currently, there are no standards or provisions in Section 508 related to individuals with cognitive disabilities. Additionally, consider functional performance criteria for persons with multiple disabilities such as a person who is deaf or blind who has cerebral palsy or a speech impairment with possible limited manual dexterity.

    Creating standards for people with multiple disabilitiesis has not been given enough consideration. Aging baby boomers are a fast growing segment of internet users and consumers of government information. Multiple disabilities are fact of aging. Government and Industry need to consider how to best serve this population now.

  2. This is absolutely important, but needs to go into the 508 Refresh record, not the 508 strategy. Visit http://www.regulations.gov/#!searchResults;a=ATBCB;cmd=03%257C07%257C12-03%257C07%257C12;rpp=25;po=0

    Yes Jim, that's an important point. Thank you. It does need to go into the 508 refresh.
