Dear Readers

Welcome to a special edition of EASI's "Information Technologies and Disabilities" Journal. This quarter's edition will focus on science, math and technology issues for K-12 students with disabilities. EASI's general focus for the past several years has been on both post-secondary education and the workforce. Within the scope of creating materials to help prepare individuals with disabilities to compete in higher education and the workplace, EASI's work has touched on K-12 issues in the past. However, this is the first edition of the journal that will exclusively focus on K-12 challenge s and strategies.

This edition of the journal is partially supported by EASI's National Science Foundation grant to compile and disseminate information about K-12 science, math, engineering and technology access. For more information about EASI's NSF materials, see: http://www.rit.edu/~easi.

The material in this edition of the journal has been contributed by individuals who have been working in the K-12 science and math arena. We think their insights will prove valuable to you.

We hope you enjoy this issue of the ITD Journal, and we encourage your comments and reactions.

Sincerely,

Carmela Cunningham

ITD Journal Special K-12 Issue Editor

EASI-SEM (Starts January 5, 1998) is an online workshop providing insights on how to make science and math more accessible to students with disabilities.
