Chapter Pages

At the top of each chapter page is that chapter’s title. Some of the chapters begin with an Overview Video, located next to the chapter title. Below the title and Overview Video is Focus Area 1. This is where you will find the content of the chapter.

Focus Area 1

Within Focus Area 1, chapter content is separated into tabs. Tabs are the titles located across the top of the box in Focus Area 1. Click on the tabs left-to-right to move through the chapter content in order. 

Once you’ve clicked on a tab, read the information on that page. Then, click on the buttons at the bottom of that page to open pop-up slideshows for more detailed information. To exit a slideshow presentation, click on the ‘x’ in the top right corner of the slide, or anywhere on your screen outside of the slideshow. This will take you back to the tab page. 

The Introduction tab in each chapter contains a link to a print-only version of the chapter. The print-only versions, as well as all other worksheets or documents, are also located in the MATERIALS page at the top of the site. From there, all content can be downloaded and printed. 

Throughout the website, there are audio and video links that highlight experiences from business owners with disabilities. Click on the ‘play’ icons to hear and see this content. All video content is captioned, and all audio content links to a full transcript. 

Focus Area 2

Chapters 2 through 7 include a second focus area called Check Your Understanding, located below Focus Area 1. This section contains review questions and answers, so you can assess your understanding of the chapter material.
