2. Your Audience  > Special Needs

SPECIAL NEEDS

Virtually every audience I address has a special need in some way. Sometimes food is involved, and I need to make sure we have accommodated vegetarian, kosher, non-beef eaters, and so on. In other circumstances, you need to accommodate disabilities such as visual impairment, hearing impairment, and physical mobility limitations. Most U.S. locations where you might give presentations are required by federal law to be accessible to those who have disabilities.

Before you begin your presentation, ask any audience members who have disabilities what will make the presentation easier or more useful for them. You might take care to describe what you write on flip charts or other visual aids when you have someone who is visually impaired, for example.
