Case Studies of University Science Faculty: Experiences with Students with Disabilities.
Farbman, Andrea Helen
The number of college students with disabilities has increased steadily as a result of federal legislation mandating access to education. This qualitative study explored experiences that 10 science faculty members had with disabled college students. Ss participated in open ended interviews. Of primary importance were curricular and instructional modifications and knowledge regarding university resources and legal responsibilities. Findings indicated that the majority of faculty members, although willing to make accommodations, were unfamiliar with available resources, were unclear about the university's legal responsibilities, and for the most part made accommodations based on the approach of the student.
