People with disabilities, particularly blind or partially sighted, are underrepresented in STEM fields. Leading UK sight loss charity RNIB reports that this starts in education with achievements in maths by blind and partially sighted learners tending below performance in other academic subjects. With the increasing importance of STEM at work, teachers and technology companies must come together to develop new tools and methods to ensure that students with disabilities are not left behind.
