1989/90 Innotek Software Resource Guide. A Guide for Selecting Software for Children with Special Needs.
Trieschmann, Mary, Ed.
The result of a continuing study of software related to children with special needs, this guide is intended to assist in the selection of software appropriate for children with mental, physical, behavioral, sensory, and learning impairments. Suggestions for gifted children are also included. The guide is updated yearly and includes more than 190 carefully selected software programs that have been used successfully with children ranging in age from 2 through 14. Each program has been reviewed by trained teachers, therapists, and parents for learning value, child appeal, ease of use, and flexibility. Information for each software package includes subject, skills content, age level, the specific disability addressed, hardware and peripheral specifications, price, and a description of the software, including whether or not it includes graphics, animation, and sound. Separate listings of software companies, peripherals, and adaptive equipment resources are included. The guide is designed for use as a resource and is not an endorsement for any specific program or manufacturer. (GL)
