I recently came across the following helpful resources when creating a syllabus for my own course:

Accessible Syllabus (Tulane University)
https://www.accessiblesyllabus.com <https://www.accessiblesyllabus.com/>

Make a More Inclusive Syllabus with Tulane’s Accessible Syllabus Project
https://www.chronicle.com/blogs/profhacker/make-a-more-inclusive-syllabus-with-tulanes-accessible-syllabus-project/62386 <https://www.chronicle.com/blogs/profhacker/make-a-more-inclusive-syllabus-with-tulanes-accessible-syllabus-project/62386>

Accessible Syllabus Template (Temple University)
https://accessibility.temple.edu/how-materials/accessible-materials/accessible-syllabus-template <https://accessibility.temple.edu/how-materials/accessible-materials/accessible-syllabus-template>
Includes a downloadable "Template for Creating an Accessible Syllabus" in Word

Accessible Syllabus (University of Minnesota)
https://accessibility.umn.edu/instructors/accessible-syllabus <https://accessibility.umn.edu/instructors/accessible-syllabus>

Hope these help,
