From the Foreword, by Dr. Florence Kiragu Nyamu:
In Promoting Science Literacy for Students with Disabilities, Dr. Zandile Nkabinde explores the benefits and opportunities of science literacy for learners with exceptionalities. It is based on the recognition that students who are mild and high functioning are capable of learning science when accomodations and adaptations are made to ensure their success.
