研究テーマ

 

障がいは多様性です。障害を持つ人々が直面するバリアは、社会的および態度的障壁に起因しています。障がいに対する人々の態度を変え、よりインクルーシプな社会を目指すためには、障がいがあるなし関係なく、大学への進学や就労の機会を与えることが必要です。そのためには合理的な配慮、学習のためのユニバーサルデザイン(UDL)、テクノロジーの利用を普及し、よりアクセシブルな環境を作り出す必要があります。私たちは研究のエビデンスに基づいて、障がいのある人の学びを支援するトレーニングや情報提供を行い、インクルーシブなコミュニティーを築き上げることに取り組んでいます。

その普及・啓発、また効果的な指標づくり、さらには自分たちでできる地域診断ツールの開発など、研究と社会実践を兼ね合わせた領域を切り開いていきたいと思っています。

 

研究キーワード

学習障害、 障がい、 アシスティブテクノロジー、学びのユニバーサルデザイン、STEM
