Identification of Computer Software for the Disadvantaged and Compatible Hardware. Final Report.
Reid, James P.
The purpose of the project being reported on here was to develop a "Directory of Microcomputer Software for Special Needs Students." The bulk of this final report consists of a copy of the actual directory. Based on information gathered from commercial software manufacturers and distributors, the directory lists microcomputer software for disadvantaged and handicapped students. Disadvantaged students include economically and academically disadvantaged, while specific disability categories include mentally retarded, hard of hearing, speech impaired, visually impaired, and physically handicapped students. Entries are organized according to two general categories: computer managed instruction and computer assisted instruction. Individual listings include information on content area, program name, target grade level, microcomputer hardware information, program summary, and distributor information. (CL)
