About the Contributors


Many people worked together to create these instructional materials so that others can learn from DO-IT's efforts to make science, mathematics, and technology courses accessible to students with disabilities. The development team that helped create the 2003, 2006, and 2009 editions included Tarrah Carson, Dan Comden, Marvin Crippen, Andrea Doyle, Rebecca Drury, Imke Durre, Natalie Hansuvadha, Carole Isakson, Tracy Jirikowic, Richard Ladner, Sara Lopez, Kathy Medcalf-Flaker, Mick Moore, Steven Nourse, Rebekah Peterson, Amy Olson, Jeanne Portelance, Alan Roth, Laura Roy, Deborah Schmitt, Cheryl Smith, Heather Stoehr, Sherry Studley, Valerie Sundby, and Linda Tofle. Much of the content is duplicated in other publications, training materials, and web pages published by DO-IT; most can be found within the comprehensive website at http://www.uw.edu/doit/.
