Council for Exceptional Children, Reston, VA. Center for Special Education Technology.
One of nine brief guides for special educators on using computer technology, this guide focuses on computer use with learning disabled students for such purposes as direct instruction and development of communication skills. It is noted that the learning disabled student may possess certain characteristics which require the kind of modification of instruction that computers can provide. Possible hardware modifications are briefly considered. Criteria for selecting appropriate software for learning disabled students in general are provided as are specific criteria for software selected students with dyslexia or attention deficit disorder. Tool software, such as word processing programs are also recommended for these students. Resources listed include five readings, four organizations, seven periodicals, four language development software packages, four math software packages, four reading software packages, four spelling and writing software packages, four visual and perceptual software packages, and three speech synthesizers.
