Telecommunications: A New Horizon for the Handicapped.
Cunningham, Pat; Gose, Joan
The paper describes a computer bulletin board program operated by physically handicapped high school students. Through the bulletin board system, resource people have been contacted, students' written communication and interpersonal relationships have been strengthened, and professional contact has been strengthened. Administrative implications for utilizing such a technology in a school setting include inservice needs and funding sources. Solutions to such problems as frustrating software programs, prohibitive expenses in equipment and adaptive peripherals, and slow response time by students are offered. (CL)
