Disabled education. A handicapped young girl and her teacher work with a computer specially des- igned for the disabled. The teacher is pointing at pictures on the screen. The girl, who is sitting in a modified chair with supports holding her head and neck, is watching attentively. Computer technology has had a dramatic impact on the lives of the disabled. It has enabled paralysed patients to perform everyday tasks like switching on lights, and has made communication with the outside world possible for those unable to speak. Even computer games have found service, as a form of occupational therapy for disabled children.
