|Abstract:||RASEM Squared works to increase the number of people with disabilities pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. To accomplish this goal, it provides funding directly to students to support their college education and to educators who accommodate students with disabilities in their STEM curricula. This paper describes several projects that illustrate RASEM Squared’s activities, and identifies six major issues that have arisen in its work. These issues involve student self-disclosure, transition from supports under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to those under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), training of special education and science education teachers, use of assistive technology (AT) devices, compatibility of software and hardware, and links between services.|
