As some of you know, I am working on my Master's in Assistive Technology.
For my Thesis/Research Project, I am putting together some resources that
will help art teachers use assistive technology with children with physical
disabilities in their art class. Included (I am putting it on a CD) will be
my research paper, a PowerPoint presentation of the various devices that
would be helpful (of course, full of pictures), resources, definition of
terms, devices descriptions, and some special setups for some assistive
technology devices including alternate keyboards and switches.
These setups that I have programmed would enable kids who use those devices
to access common art programs previously inaccessible to them including:
Dabbler, With Open Eyes, Disney's Magic Artist, Kid Pix Studio, Photo
Deluxe, Louvre for Kids, the Wilton Series, ClarisWorks for Kids,
AppleWorks, and others.
In addition, I plan on making some QuickTime videos of some kids using these
devices.

What I was wondering is how much of an interest there would be in such a CD
resource. I would like your input and feedback.
