Problems encountered by science teachers in wheelchairs

Research output: Other contribution


Teaching science, and learning to teach science, is a challenge at the best of times and, if the teacher is a wheelchair user, the learning curve is significantly steeper. How can school-based mentors, line managers (including senior leadership) and heads of science, along with university science teacher educators, support wheelchair users who are teachers (or trainee teachers) of science? In this article suggestions are made based on the experience of four wheelchair users.
