Handicapped Children and Computers
Robert D. Clark
ABSTRACT: This article reviews the many adaptations and applications of microcomputer technology for handicapped children. The review expands Peelle’s (1983) computer metaphors to include:computer as sensory enhancer, computer as agent, and computer as teacher. Specific hardware and software applications are reviewed in relation to their impact on specific handicapping conditions. It is suggested that the application of computer technology to the amelioration of handicapping conditions necessarily changes our conception of “handicapping conditions” themselves.
