Thank you to all who replied to my first request for information about the
use of computers for the multi-handicapped student. My problem is that
only five teachers replied that they have used computers for this segment
of the population. If this is true my assumption is right: Art teachers
are an untapped resource to help this students to better understand the
world and achieve far more then most expect!!!!
If any of you just forgot to reply or are so moved now, please respond with
your involvement with the physically challenged segment of the population.
I am trying to develop a percentage to support my thesis. If few art
teacher are involved, then perhaps I can be the catalyst to truely make a
difference in these student's lives.
If you are coming to the Art Convention in Chicago please come to my
presentation. I will be telling my story of how I found the time and money
to fully equip a computer station to use technology to access the visual
world for these students. My district contributed no money to my dream!!!!
It can be done!!! WE can make a huge difference!!!!
My presentation will be WED. April 1st, at 5:00 pm. It will be a 50 minute
presentation. I know you will not be dissappointed!!!
Thank you again for all your support.
