Journal of Special Education Technology, v8 n4 p36-45 Sum 1987
This study compared 52 resource room programs for mildly mentally handicapped, learning disabled, and severely emotionally disturbed secondary students, which used or did not use microcomputers. Benefits of microcomputer use included increased active task engagement and increased individually focused instruction, but overall differences in most teacher behaviors were relatively small.
