Advancements in Technology, Accessibility and Equity in Schools
Our reliance on technology to function in society has never been greater. Unfortunately for people with limited access or ability to use technology, this places their access to necessary services even further out of reach than ever. These digital divides have a disproportionate impact on people of color, people with disabilities, and other minoritized populations. Our research on technology to support or deliver evidence-based practices focuses on improving both the effectiveness of these practices and their accessibility across diverse populations. Through community-engaged research that involves local and national stakeholders, we also have an emerging research program focused on identifying and reducing barriers to services for people with disabilities with culturally, linguistically, and racially diverse backgrounds.
