EDU 673 Discussion Question "Curriculum Barrier Case Study"

Robert also happens to have Spina Bifida, which confines him to a motorized wheelchair due to his limited mobility and limb strength. His disability negatively impacts learning in reading comprehension because of the motor coordination it takes to hold a book.
