AEM for Math and Science

Presenters:

Accessible Educational Materials (AEM) supports the success of students with print disabilities. These are students who might experience visual impairments, physical impairments, or reading disabilities. Sometimes the solutions are straightforward, but in certain areas, such as math and science, the situation can be more complex. One example of this is the conversion of a complex math equation into an audio format.  

View the recorded presentation and learn about strategies to help K-12 students with print disabilities succeed in math and science. Topics will include accessible teaching strategies, easy lab accommodations, talking calculators that provide haptic feedback, and tactile DNA models.
