Assisting People with Multiple Disabilities and Minimal Motor Behavior to Improve Computer Drag-and-Drop Efficiency through a Mouse Wheel
Shih, Ching-Hsiang
Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, v32 n6 p2867-2874 Nov-Dec 2011
This study evaluated whether two people with multiple disabilities and minimal motor behavior would be able to improve their Drag-and-Drop (DnD) performance using their finger/thumb poke ability with a mouse scroll wheel through a Dynamic Drag-and-Drop Assistive Program (DDnDAP). A multiple probe design across participants was used in this study to assess the effects of using DDnDAP in enhancing participants' DnD ability. Both participants: (a) improved their DnD efficiency with the use of DDnDAP and (b) remained highly successful through the maintenance phase. The implications of the findings are discussed. (Contains 5 figures.)
