The recording of information and ideas and the demonstration of knowledge in writing or print continue to be vital skills in educational situations. Children who have difficulty with handling a pen or pencil, or who have problems with organizing movements at a cerebral level are at a great disadvantage in school no matter what their intellectual and academic levels may be. Personal computers and electronic keyboards can revolutionize the lives of children with these types of difficulties, enabling them to perform in the classroom at a level commensurate with their peers. However, since such equipment is costly, it is important that an accurate assessment is made of the child's needs and abilities to ensure that appropriate equipment is chosen. It is equally important when teaching keyboarding skills to select methods and techniques which are appropriate to each child's strengths and weaknesses. This book aims to meet the needs for accessible information about the children who are likely to benefit from using personal computers and electronic keyboards and how to teach keyboarding skills to such children.
