Abstract:

Information technology is changing rapidly, and disabled people will be among the beneficiaries of these changes. This book addresses how these technologies may affect the lives of the those with physical and sensory handicaps. New information technologies will help disable people communicate, and since communication is at the heart of human life, this should change many lives. This book examines how new information technologies will affect learning--learning problems faced by disabled people, how these technologies can be formally deployed in schooling, problems and constraints faced by the disabled in utilizing them, and an educated guess about how these technologies may affect the disabled in the immediate future.
