Welcome to USIMAC
The Utah State Instructional Materials Access Center (USIMAC) opened its’ doors on January 9, 2009 to provide assistance to local education agencies in meeting the requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA) for the provision of accessible instructional materials.
The USIMAC offers the opportunity for students with print disabilities to gain increased access to the general curriculum by making core instructional material accessible in alternate formats.
The USIMAC will utilize the National Instructional Material Access Center (NIMAC), the American Printing House for the Blind (APH), BookShare, the Recordings for the Blind and Dyslexic (RFB&D), as well as other professional entities to secure accessible instructional materials for qualifying students. If a requested textbook is not available, the USIMAC staff will produce the instructional material in the accessible format(s) requested by the student’s IEP team. In accordance with the Chafee amendment, the USIMAC produces accessible core materials in Braille, large print, audio (MP3 format), digital (e-Texts such as PDF, HTML, Word, text), or DAISY (which can be a combination of audio and digital) formats.
