What is AIMheadphones 2

AIM refers to Accessible Instructional Materials, which are materials designed to be used by people with disabilities affecting their ability to read print.   These disabilities can be vision impairments, learning disabilities, and potentially other qualifying conditions.

The TN AIM Center’s purpose is to support the delivery of Accessible Instructional Materials to all students who need these resources. ¬†Specifically this can be described by the following two goals:


  • Provide support for Accessible Instructional Materials and their appropriate use by qualifying individuals with print disabilities according to the expectations of IDEIA 2004.
  • Provide information and demonstrate examples of Accessible Learning Materials that support the principle of multiple means of representation as defined by Universal Design for Learning (CAST, 2011; NETP, 2010).
