Hoffmann, Rosanne – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2019
A new version of SALS (Submersible Audible Light Sensor) consists of a wireless light-detecting probe Bluetooth® connected to the iOS SALS App. As in previous versions of SALS, changes in detected light are converted to changes in sound, the latter now rendered with iPhone or iPad audio. The SALS probe assists the student with visual impairment in…

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…

Ürey, Mustafa; Güler, Maside – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2018
Although there is a growing emphasis on determining how people perceive environmental issues, the studies composed of functioning members of society who happen to have visual impairments are still scarce. The scope of this current paper is aimed at revealing the environmental issue perceptions of middle school students with such conditions. As a…

Taylor, Jonte C.; Tseng, Ching-mei; Murillo, Angelique; Therrien, William; Hand, Brian – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2018
The increased emphasis on STEM related careers and the use of science in everyday life makes learning science content and concepts critical for all students especially for those with disabilities. As suggested by the National Resource Council (2012), more emphasis is being placed on being able to critically think about science concepts in and…

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…
