Kolitsky, Michael A. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2019
The geologic method of stratigraphy which studies the structure of the earth by making layers was employed with 3D laser cutting techniques to make more easily defined tactile regions in templates of cells, tissues and anatomic regions containing muscles and bones. Templates were made audio responsive by hand-drilling a small hole in a template…

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…

Isaacson, Mick D.; Supalo, Cary; Michaels, Michelle; Roth, Alan – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2016
This study examined the potential relationship of accessible hands-on science learning experiences to the development of positive beliefs concerning one's capacity to function in the sciences and motivation to consider science as a college major and career. Findings from Likert survey items given before and after engaging in accessible hands-on…

Hwang, Jiwon; Taylor, Jonte C. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2016
There has been increased attention paid to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics also known as STEM. The focus on STEM has been both educational and occupational. Unfortunately, students with disabilities perform below their peers without disabilities in math and science. The authors discuss issues related to STEM and students with…

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…

Isaacson, Mick D.; Michaels, Michelle – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2015
Ambiguity in speech is a possible barrier to the acquisition of knowledge for students who have print disabilities (such as blindness, visual impairments, and some specific learning disabilities) and rely on auditory input for learning. Chemistry appears to have considerable potential for being spoken ambiguously and may be a barrier to accessing…

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…

Pagano, Todd – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2013
At the risk of opening with a cliché statement- at the heart of the most effective mentor is a burning passion. The fuel for this passion is a desire to convince, not just try to, but actually convince your mentee that you care about their success (be it in the classroom, career, or personal life). I am guilty of believing in, and living by, this…

Supalo, Cary A. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2012
Entry into science education for students with blindness or low vision can present economic and technological barriers to access. This manuscript discusses funding hands-on student experiences in middle school, high school, and post-secondary education. Further, the use of access technologies recently developed for science education is also…

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,…
