Stemming on STEM: A STEM Education Framework for Students with Disabilities
Hwang, Jiwon; Taylor, Jonte C.
Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, v19 n1 Article 4 p39-49 2016
There has been increased attention paid to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics also known as STEM. The focus on STEM has been both educational and occupational. Unfortunately, students with disabilities perform below their peers without disabilities in math and science. The authors discuss issues related to STEM and students with disabilities. These issues include (1) traditional views of STEM education, (2) the importance of STEM education, and (3) students with disabilities performance in STEM. The authors posit a framework for STEM education for students with disabilities and promote the incorporation of the arts to increase students' STEM knowledge and achievement.
