The Foundation for Science and Disability, founded in 1978, is an affiliate of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.  Its mission is to promote the integration of scientists with disabilities into all activities of the scientific community, and to promote the removal of barriers in order to enable students with disabilities to choose careers in science.

This reference page contains archives, links, and supplementary information that may be helpful to members and others interested in the Foundation.
The home page of the Foundation for Science and Disability is  stemd.org
