Strengthening Educators’ Practices for Engaging and Empowering Students with Disabilities and Difficulties as Mathematics Learners

Students with disabilities and difficulties experience pervasive challenges in mathematics and exit the STEM pipeline early in their lives, significantly narrowing their future academic and career options. As a result, the potential contributions these individuals bring to mathematics and to STEM fields more generally may never be recovered. Addressing this issue requires that educators move from a deficit-model of disabilities to asset-based approaches that engage and empower students in learning significant mathematics.
