Link to learning: The use of computers by children with disabilities

David Harris and Sally Boyd

This research project looks at the effects of computers on the learning of children with a disability, in their home and school environments. It identifies some of the factors which lead to the maximum educational benefits for children from the use of computers.

The research identifies the skills a child learns with the assistance of a computer, and progress in these skills over some months. The influences on children's learning are described and analysed in relation to their computer use and skill development.

Also included are the educational goals for the child, and the home and school support that is available to meet their learning goals.
