Expanding the Pipeline: The Status of Persons with Disabilities in the Computer Science Pipeline


By Richard E. Ladner, AccessComputing Principal Investigator

For the past fifteen years, I have led the NSF-funded broadening participation alliance AccessComputing that has the goal of increasing the participation and success of people with disabilities in computing fields. This has given me and my team the ability to help create positive change and to observe what others have done to do the same.  No doubt, there are still significant barriers for some students with disabilities to enter our field, and as technology changes new barriers often arise.
