Subject: COU project on making science labs accessible

Hi Folks:

The National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS) is
a charitable, not-for-profit organization. Our mandate is to support
full access to education and employment for post-secondary students
and graduates with disabilities across Canada. We are currently
working on a contract for the Council of Ontario Universities (COU)
on the accessibility of science laboratories. The final product will
include a 5,000 word article and a user-friendly resource on making
science laboratories accessible to students with disabilities.

We are contacting campus disability services providers in Canada and
the United States in order to ask for help. Does your college or
university have any resources or best practices regarding this issue
that you provide to faculty? If so, could you please share them the
information with us? Alternatively, are there staff you could
recommend that we can communicate with in order to conduct a short
interview regarding their experiences and/or knowledge of science
laboratory accessibility for students with disabilities? If you are
able to get back to us by Wednesday, August 14, 2013, it would be
greatly appreciated.

If you are not the proper contact, but know of someone at your school
who could assist us, please send us their contact information, and
feel free to pass along this message.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to
communicate with me or Erica Carson, Program Officer:
erica.carson at neads.ca who is working with me on this project.
