Northeastern plans launch of (Dis)ability Project

Thursday, April 2, 2015

Biology is not René Talbot’s best subject. But one day her biology professor gave a lecture on amino acids and then displayed a bright, big children’s toy. At that moment, Talbot said the light bulb went off. “He brought the entire class along with him,” she said, when her professor engaged the class in a discussion by using what is known as universal design. The approach refers to designing products and spaces so they can be used by the widest range of people possible.
