Ross, Annemarie D.; Edenzon, Kyle; Pagano, Susan Smith; Yerrick, Randy; Pagano, Todd – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2019
Curricula related to sustainability and climate science are being integrated into academic science courses and programs. We set out to assess the knowledge of some of these environmental concepts among a group of Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing (D/d/HH) postsecondary students. A survey that attempted to gauge student understanding and perceptions of climate…

Michael, Jessica; Wohlers, H. David – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2019
Chemistry laboratories ordinarily involve a number of visual observations and require qualitative and quantitative explanations of these observations. A student with blindness at Truman State University successfully completed the laboratory portion of the non-majors liberal arts chemistry course with the assistance of a senior undergraduate…

Gehret, Austin U.; Trussell, Jessica W.; Michel, Lea V. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2017
An undergraduate research experience can provide a unique opportunity for students to learn and grow as scientists; when positive, this experience is often transformative and motivates students to pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) graduate degrees or careers. Conversely, negative research experiences can sour a…

Gormally, Cara L.; Marchut, Amber – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2017
Students who are deaf and hard-of-hearing are underrepresented in science majors, yet we know little about why. Students from other underrepresented groups in science--women and people of color--tend to highly value altruistic or communal career goals, while perceiving science as uncommunal. Research suggests that holding stereotypical conceptions…

Kahn, Sami; Pigman, Ryan; Ottley, Jennifer – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2017
Early childhood educators teach science to all students, including students with disabilities. Strategies for accommodating students with disabilities in science, including familiarity with equitable frameworks such as Universal Design for Learning (UDL) are therefore a critical aspect of early childhood teacher candidates' pedagogical content…

Papasalouros, Andreas; Tsolomitis, Antonis – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2017
The TeX/LaTeX typesetting system is the most wide-spread system for creating documents in Mathematics and Science. However, no reliable tool exists to this day for automatically transcribing documents from the above formats into Braille/Nemeth code. Thus, visually impaired students of related fields do not have access to the bulk of study material…

Ross, Annemarie; Yerrick, Randy K. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2015
Overall, science teaching at the university level has remained in a relatively static state. There is much research and debate among university faculty regarding the most effective methods of teaching science. But it remains largely rhetoric. The traditional lecture model in STEM higher education is limping along in its march toward inclusion and…

Robinson, Vicki – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2013
Virtual worlds are used in many educational and business applications. At the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at Rochester Institute of Technology (NTID/RIT), deaf college students are introduced to the virtual world of Second Life, which is a 3-D immersive, interactive environment, accessed through computer software. NTID students use…

Pagano, Todd; Ross, Annemarie D.; O'Neill, George J. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2012
A goal of the Laboratory Science Technology program at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, a college of Rochester Institute of Technology, is to produce graduates with strong foundations in applied science, hands-on laboratory applications, and "soft skills" necessary for competitive employment as laboratory technicians.…

Stumbo, Norma J.; Hedrick, Bradley N.; Weisman, Courtney; Martin, Jay K. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2011
The purpose of this preliminary study was to explore the residual barriers and facilitators for a selected group of individuals with severe physical disabilities who had been afforded a comprehensive set of strategies and services aimed at meeting their basic personal as well as academic needs. Their perceptions of both barriers and facilitators,…

Isaacson, Mick; Schleppenbach, Dave; Lloyd, Lyle L. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2011
Individuals with print disabilities have difficulty processing information through visual means and rely heavily on spoken input. Mathematics and fields that have a heavy emphasis on mathematics are difficult for these individuals because of ambiguity inherent in typical everyday spoken renderings of mathematical expressions. MathSpeak is a set of…

Ross, Annemarie D.; Pagano, Todd – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2009
There is often a particular void in the education of deaf and hard-of-hearing students who intend to become competent working laboratory technicians. Inasmuch as certain basic professional skills ("soft skills," in this case) are not generally taught in traditional science courses, a new curriculum has been developed in order to enforce…
