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.

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.
