Kroes, KC; Lefler, Daniel; Schmitt, Aaron; Supalo, Cary A. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2016
The hands-on laboratory experiments are frequently what spark students' interest in science. Students who are blind or have low vision (BLV) typically do not get the same experience while participating in hands-on activities due to accessibility. Over the course of approximately nine months, common chemistry laboratory experiments were adapted and…

Kahn, Sami; Feldman, Allan; Cooke, Michele L. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2013
Deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) persons are underrepresented in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). One of the major barriers to STEM careers is DHH students' extremely low college graduation rates. While social and literacy barriers play a critical role in this phenomenon, student autonomy has also been cited as…

Supalo, Cary A.; Wohlers, H. David; Humphrey, Jennifer R. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2011
Students with blindness or low vision are often discouraged from full participation in laboratory science classes due to the inadequacy of current methodological approaches and the lack of sophisticated adaptive technologies. Consequently, these students rarely go on to pursue advanced studies and employment in the sciences. In response to his own…
