Accessibility Statement for AAP Publications
AAP Publications is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website while adhering to available standards and guidelines. Alternative text and extended descriptions are not reviewed for consistency with AAP policy.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines 3 levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA.
Our platform is committed to the creation of software that meets modern accessibility expectations by applying best practices to target Level AA conformance to WCAG 2.1 standards of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). Accessibility compliance is tested using industry-standard WCAG 2.1 validation software.
AAP Publications is conformant with WCAG 2.1 Level AA. Our Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) is available here.
AAP Publications makes UserWay's Web Accessibility Widget available at the lower left of your screen. The widget is powered by a dedicated accessibility server and does not collect any personal information. The software allows AAP Publications to improve its compliance with WCAG 2.1.
We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility. In the meantime, should you experience any difficulty in accessing the AAP Publications website, please contact us at
