Accommodating Students with Disabilities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) - US
This book focuses on the accommodation of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) learners, with an emphasis on actual practices utilised by educators.
Design Science designs software tools for the education, scientific and publishing communities that need to make math accessible. Their current math authoring tools such as MathType, MathFlow and MathDaisy can all assist students and educators in creating accessible math content.
This website provides both general guidelines to follow when describing STEM images and many examples of how the guidelines can be implemented. Including information on how to describe Bar Charts, Line Graphs, Venn Diagrams, Scatter Plots, Tables and Math Equations.
Disability Services at Western Sydney University (WSU) along with associated faculty, has developed a series of inherent requirement Statements. The inherent requirements outlined provide a guide for students and staff when deciding whether you are able to meet these requirements and the type of reasonable adjustments that could be put in place to allow you to complete the course without compromising the academic integrity of the course.
