Where can I find projects that promote the participation of students with disabilities in STEM?
The Research in Disabilities Education (RDE) Collaboration Dissemination website consolidates information and materials from projects funded under the National Science Foundation's RDE program. The content is designed to increase awareness of how people with disabilities can be successful in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) as well as how other programs can make their web and print resources, courses, and activities more welcoming and accessible to people with disabilities. Featured is a searchable Knowledge Base of questions and answers, case studies, and promising practices
Materials on the site can be used for individual and group instruction. The resources provided include links to materials presented in a variety of formats including brochures, videos, internet radio casts, websites, and more. This rich collection of resources is supported by RDE Collaborative Dissemination Project, which is directed by the DO-IT Center at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA.
The ultimate goal of RDE Collaborative Dissemination Project efforts is to broaden the participation in STEM fields and improve these fields with the talents and perspectives of individuals with disabilities.
