Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7382)


Students with disabilities or impairments have often been passive recipients of ‘inclusive practice’ or ‘assistive technology’. The Special Thematic Session (STS) on Putting the Disabled Student in Charge focusses on topics that have a direct impact upon the education of disabled students and covers all aspects of disabled students’ education, from the development of resources to full participation in lectures and collaborative work and the provision of alternative formats.
