This site was designed as a graduate project for EDUC 220i : Developing World Wide Web Materials for Educators, Spring 1997, at George Washington University-Educational Technology and Leadership Program. I am a Speech-Language Pathologist currently on Educational Leave of Absence (ELWOP) from the Department of Defense Dependents Schools (DoDDS), pursuing an interest in computers and access to technology by the disabled.

My main goal in designing the site is to provide a comprehensive directory of resources, for the Special Education personnel working in overseas locations, that can assist them in their daily work settings with special needs students and expand their professional development opportunities. A second goal is to try to design the site so that it contains accessibility features i.e. text descriptions for graphics, fast loading pages, limited number of graphics, icons, images, easy navigation, to accommodate the needs of disabled users and those non-disabled users that have limited bandwidth, slow speed connectivity, older hardware, text-only browsers etc.
