NSTA: Science for Students with Disabilities

STEM educators may appreciate Science for Students with Disabilities, a resource provided by the National Science Teaching Association (NSTA). Here, visitors will find a wealth of information, teaching strategies, and links to additional resources, all aimed at helping science educators work more effectively with students with disabilities. These resources are helpfully organized into Physical Disabilities and Cognitive Disabilities, with an additional category for General accessibility information. Each category is subdivided into pages focused on more specific topics, such as Visual Impairments under Physical Disabilities and Autism under Cognitive Disabilities. Each page begins with some general information about its topic followed by specific strategies that educators can adopt to make their teaching more inclusive of students with that type of disability. While these resources were compiled with science teachers in mind, educators in other disciplines may also find useful tips here. Science for Students with Disabilities is the continuation of a project originally developed by Dr. Edward C. Keller, Jr., an award-winning professor of biology at West Virginia University who, due in part to his own paralysis from polio, was passionate about working to ensure that science education becomes fully accessible to all students, including those with disabilities.
