This practical new guide is designed to help school officials put students and staff with learning disabilities on a "level playing field" with everone else, in computer labs, in libraries, and in classrooms. Rather than merely focusing on specific types of hardware and software, the authors discuss how to set up the infrastructure necessary to provide technology and support. They cover computer access issues, as well as the use of computer-based compensatory tools- speical adaptive technology designed to enable individuals with disabilities to participate more independently in the academic environment. This book will serve as an excellent guide for college and university administrators, computer lab staff, librarians, disabled student services staff and faculty members.
