Computer technology, combined with appropriate instruction, may help teachers "bridge the gap" for students with special needs by providing a rich, active, and highly individualized interaction between student and educational environment.
For the past several years, faculty members of the Centre for Communicative and Cognitive Disabilities and educators enrolled in the M.Ed program at the Faculty of Education, the University of Western Ontario, have been studying the effective uses of technology with students with special needs. The results of their classroom research with students of various ages and disabilities in a variety of special settings is reported here in Exceptional Solutions in a straightforward, "hands on" style designed to be of direct, practical assistance to teachers.
