There are students with disabilities in every college program. Game development programs, in particular, tend to draw large numbers of students with disabilities. These can present unique challenges to teaching that go above just sharing information. In this session Henry Elmo Bawden will share his experiences in tackling this challenge. He will share success stories, and a methodology for you to use. You will learn to overcome challenges, while helping to utilize the amazing and unique strengths students with disabilities can bring to your programs.


Attendees will leave with a methodology that can be applied to their current curriculum. It will help engage students, improve learning and retention, create support systems, and build up a culture that will improve success. It is designed for disabilities, but is useful for all students.
