Connected Science Learning: Call for Contributions for the 10th Issue


Theme for Tenth Issue (to be published in spring 2019): Serving Youth with Special Needs

Contributions are due October 15, 2018

The National Girls Collaborative website on Youth With Disabilities lists 30 resources for helping make STEM learning programs successful for youth with special needs.

According to the accessSTEM program at the University of Washington, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, its amendments, and other federal and state legislation require that schools make programs accessible to students with disabilities. Disability-related accommodations are unique to each individual. With appropriate accommodations, students with disabilities can be challenged to reach the same high academic standards set for students without disabilities.

A review of these two websites makes it clear there is a need to develop effective STEM programs for youth with special needs.

The goal of Connected Science Learning's tenth issue is to highlight programs and research that connect in-school and out-of-school STEM learning that serve youth with special needs.

Contributions for the tenth issue are due October 15, 2018
