Basics About Disabilities and Science and Engineering Education

The following is an introduction to disability issues, history, laws, and research for educators who have little or no experience with students or colleagues with disabilities. There is a short overview in the form of a presentation script. A section looks at the need for inclusion and recruitment of students with disabilities to science and engineering fields, and gives examples of resources for faculty to improve instruction. The Short Reader and Syllabus is a digest covering topics often included in full Disability Studies readers written by experts. An annotated bibliography is provided for those who want further depth. It draws from syllabi used for undergraduates.
