Abstract

Access can mean many different things in a classroom. For students with disabilities, access means having material, spaces, and coursework accessible for a variety of learning needs. Access can also mean recognizing the limits of time, money, and basic necessities when students come from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds. Of course, we also have universal access in education, which states that all people have equal opportunity in education, regardless of marginalized positions and social inequities (Dolmage, 2015).
