AABA is working to increase accessibility at our annual conference

All podium presentations will use automatic voice-to-text transcription using PowerPoint subtitles (you don't need to add your own subtitles). You may also use built-in PowerPoint tools to check accessibility.

Presenters are reminded to implement accessible fonts and color schemes in their presentations (see links below).

The conference venue will have access to:

  • quiet room with low lighting and reduced sensory stimulation
  • family and lactation respite room
  • secure refrigerator for medications
  • fidget spinners – available on request at AABA registration desk
  • eye masks for sleeping – available on request at AABA registration desk
  • ear plugs – available on request at AABA registration desk

Most presentation rooms will be single-level. One room will be set up with a stage for presenters that includes stairs (Platinum D). If you have access requirements, please contact Lori Strong.
