Many are concerned that America will not have a sufficient supply of scientists and engineers in the workforce for the 21st century. Five regional workshops were held by four organizations (in Boston, Massachusetts; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Seattle-Tacoma, Washington; and Phoenix-Tempe, Arizona) to provide a forum for all those concerned with issues involved in the underrepresentation in science and engineering of students with disabilities. This document is one of two documents that was distributed through the participating national organizations. It contains the formal presentations, the identified barriers and recommended strategies to overcome them, summaries of workshop evaluations, and recommendations. (ZWH)
