How To Make Special Children Computer Friendly

By Pooja S Sharma on May 03, 2012

Computers are most important educational tool of our society. It allows children to access, process, and organize information quickly. Parents and teachers from the very beginning aim to make kids computer savvy. Computers are designed in a manner that they prove to be 'user friendly' for kids and are able to master skills at a very young age. Children with learning difficulties, hearing or visual impairments, developmental delays or physical challenges might face complexity in operating computers.

Interactive computer teaching tools for special kids

There are many free and purchasable programs that help to make learning fun for kids, especially for special children. These programs are stimulating for brain and at the same time hold children's interest. These types of visually appealing programs are very useful for children with learning disabilities. These programs cover each of the important fundamentals in general education, from mathematics to English etc.

Though there are many educational websites and software available in the market, parents must look real educational learning programs, which are less robust and support special educational needs of children with a learning disability. These programs help accelerate understanding of major subjects taught in the schools. They further help in appropriately sequencing, and reinforce learning in an educationally valid and engaging lesson plans.

Using these programs, children progress at a faster rate using multisensory learning that helps in their learning style. The computer as a tool is very engaging. Children who find text books and non-interactive environments dull often face ADD/ADHD. But, when they learn through interactive medium, they are successful in focusing and learning. Computers are impersonal so autistic children learn without the distraction of interpersonal relations.

How to equip computer to meet needs of special children?

First, you need to evaluate what kind of adaptive aids are required?

You might need PC with a larger keyboard and buttons, so children can have fun online while learning new skills.
You might need screen magnifier to enlarge images and print something you need
You might need a mouse which is super easy to click or would need an alternative kind of input device, such as a touch screen can be better.
There are certain operating systems available in the market that converts text messages into speech. It is very helpful for children with visual impairment and learning difficulties.
Some of the word processors have a "word completion" option that completes finishing typing words and phrases for your child.

Sparsh aim is to empower underprivileged children with necessary skills to manage life on their own & welfare of all sections of the society-women, children and specially empowerment of mentally and physically challenged children. We have built, a school for destitute children with special needs.
