Dr. Scott Kupferman of the Special Education Department has been very active since his employment with the College of Education's Special Education Department as an Assistant Professor, January 2014. He has received a Faculty Minority Affairs Committee grant to travel to Tuba City, Arizona to research and develop communication devices for Navajo speaking children with autism.
He also has authored two textbook chapters related to (a) assistive technology/accommodations for people with disabilities and (b) and innovative technology in the forthcoming textbook titled "Clinical Supervision and Administrative Practices for Allied Health Professions."
Additionally, Dr. Kupferman recently developed a software program called "MathemAccess" that helps curriculum developers and publishers create accessible mathematics material for students with disabilities. A pilot test with two K-12 publishers is currently underway.
