Expanding the Pipeline: The Status of Persons with Disabilities in the Computer Science Pipeline
In a recent article published in Expanding the Pipeline, Dr. Richard Ladner of AccessComputing, an NSF BPC alliance, discusses the status of people with disabilities in computer science and the computer science research pipeline. Dr. Ladner explains the difficulty in capturing accurate disability-related information from computer science students due to the lack of standardized definitions of both disability and computer science at various levels of academic and K-12 education across the United States. Additionally, available data for the professions is lacking, but efforts in both academia and industry are aiming to include those with disabilities in the hiring process.
