Beyond Access

University of Virginia professor and friend-of-the-blog John Wills Lloyd has a thoughtful entry on his own blog about the difference between pursuing "access" for people with disabilities, as opposed to "success." He explains it would be a "cruel irony" if the focus on access for students with disabilities -- for example, "talking books" or use of scribes -- overshadowed the pursuit of genuine academic achievement for students in special education.
