Accessibility Statement

Happy Moments Mom is committed to making our website and its content accessible for everyone including people with disabilities.  I am continually trying to improve the website function and ease of use for everyone and am applying the relevant accessibility standards to the best of my ability. 

As a teacher, providing accommodations and ensuring equitable access to resources is something I truly believe is not only important, but necessary and am making efforts to accommodate as many of my readers as possible.

Accessibility Conformance Status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) outlines levels of standards for accessibility for websites: Level A, Level AA and Level AAA.  Happy Moments Mom is working towards being Level AA compliant and is currently partially Level AA compliant. 

Limits to Accessibility:

This website uses some third party plug-ins such as social media sharing plugins that may not work the same for every website visitor depending on their needs.  Happy Moments Mom has no control over the settings of such plugins and is not responsible for those items outside of our control.  Please know I am currently researching options to determine if there is one that serves everyone better.  If you have suggestions, I’d love to hear from you.  Please use the feedback method below.
