Brookline Books, Jan 1, 1998 - Education - 309 pages
Assistive technology is increasingly important in improving disabled children's mobility, language, and learning--enabling them to function independently and take advantage of schooling and social opportunities. The authors here explore considerations involved in evaluating children's needs, selecting and prescribing devices, and training children, families, and teachers to use the technology.
