Hi honorsgurl,

In a word, don't do it. Apart from how members of the disabled community might
feel about a separate accessible site, will you be able to guarantee that
your two sites will always contain the same info? When you're no longer
involved, will those who take over from you continue your practices? Will you
always remember to update both sites?
