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…

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…

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…

Supalo, Cary A.; Mallouk, Thomas E.; Amorosi, Christeallia; Rankel, Lillian; Wohlers, H. David; Roth, Alan; Greenberg, Andrew – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2007
A number of tools and techniques have been developed to assist students with blindness and visual impairment who are studying in secondary and post-secondary science laboratories. Commercial electronic probes and their associated software packages allow real-time viewing and collection of data using a personal computer; however, until now, these…
