Computer Assisted Applications for Learning with Special Needs Children.
Sandals, Lauran H.
The paper presents a brief study of the use of computers for instructional purposes with 875 handicapped children; and appendixes list a mathematics skills hierarchy, a language arts hierarchy, excerpts from student reports, and abstracts of studies of computer assisted learning with physically handicapped, learning disabled, and deaf children. Results of the study presented suggest that there are many positive advantages to computer assisted instruction for handicapped children including subjective behavioral advantages demonstrated by the improved attitude of Ss and their peers (who are in charge of proctoring many of the systems).
