Overview

Computers hold much potential for students with disabilities as an access tool to learning, participation, collaboration and productivity.

Keeping in mind that the curriculum drives what the student needs to do, simple computer modifications can help all children to participate. Check out our list of vendors offering devices for simple modifications!

In this module, first we introduce the role of computer technology in American classrooms. Then we identify three areas to help teachers and related service personnel maximize the use of classroom computers for students with disabilities by addressing:

1.) student positioning,
2.) operating system utilities, and
3.) low-tech computer adaptations.
