Helping Those Hearing Hassles!
Helping children with mild and moderate hearing impairments understand what they hear.
Is mousing so difficult that it is hard to enjoy the computer?
Mouse moving can be a very difficult task for a child with a physical impairment, and can be confusing for a cognitively young child. There are many adapted mice available to fit different needs. One great low cost choice is the Touch Screen. It lets users do their dragging, clicking, and double clicking by touching the screen with their fingers! If the child has trouble reaching up to the screen, try placing the Touch Screen on a table or wheelchair tray so that a child can comfortably control the cursor.
