Kolitsky, Michael A. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2019
The geologic method of stratigraphy which studies the structure of the earth by making layers was employed with 3D laser cutting techniques to make more easily defined tactile regions in templates of cells, tissues and anatomic regions containing muscles and bones. Templates were made audio responsive by hand-drilling a small hole in a template…

Hoffmann, Rosanne – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2019
A new version of SALS (Submersible Audible Light Sensor) consists of a wireless light-detecting probe Bluetooth® connected to the iOS SALS App. As in previous versions of SALS, changes in detected light are converted to changes in sound, the latter now rendered with iPhone or iPad audio. The SALS probe assists the student with visual impairment in…

Ross, Annemarie D.; Edenzon, Kyle; Pagano, Susan Smith; Yerrick, Randy; Pagano, Todd – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2019
Curricula related to sustainability and climate science are being integrated into academic science courses and programs. We set out to assess the knowledge of some of these environmental concepts among a group of Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing (D/d/HH) postsecondary students. A survey that attempted to gauge student understanding and perceptions of climate…
