Using Microcomputers To Help Learning Disabled Student with Arithmetic Difficulties.
Brevil, Margarette
The use of microcomputers to help the learning disabled increase their arithmetic skills is examined. The microcomputer should be used to aid the learning disabled student to practice the concepts taught by the teacher. Computer-aided instruction such as drill and practice may help the learning disabled student because it gives immediate feedback and repeats questions and problems without any pressure. The microcomputer provides visual, auditory and kinesthetic stimuli to help the learning disabled student learn best. The Special Education teacher can also benefit from the microcomputer by learning to do programming. The microcomputer can be used as another tool to help deliver the appropriate educational needs of the learning disabled, but it should not be the only tool. (Author/PK)
