Research Interests

Disability is diversity. Challenges faced by people with disabilities are often due to social and attitudinal barriers. In order to change people’s attitudes towards disability and to create a more inclusive society, there is a need to provide opportunities for postsecondary education and employment regardless of disability or not. To that end, we need to create an accessible environment through the promotion of reasonable accommodation, universal design for learning, and utilization of various technologies. Our goal is to move towards an inclusive society by conducting training and disseminating information to support people with disabilities based on evidence based research.
