Special Needs Individuals

Accident victims in rehabilitation, Individuals suffering from paralysis, Mentally handicapped

Personal Computer Coaching is an ideal approach for individuals with special needs, such as those with limited access problems, who are keen to develop their computer and internet skills as alternative communication platforms to express themselves and remain in full time contact with friends, relatives, and the business community at large.

The computer is a powerful tool for everyone, but access to a computer and full computer literacy is even more precious to special needs individuals.

 

Indeed, the computer and the internet are extraordinary supplements which allows individuals who may be somewhat restricted in their mobility to express their creativity and better interact with their surroundings. It can help improve the individual's quality of life, self-esteem and even vastly contribute to rehabilitation processes.

New technologies are constantly being developed to enable more people with an array of different disabilities to have access to computers. There are now input devices that can be operated by hand, feet, eyes (blinking), mouth (breathing) and even by nodding.

Since I began Coaching, I have had the priviledge of working with a vast array of special needs adults and children. My work with them has been extremely satisfying and has taught me much about the human spirit and myself. With them I have developed the ability to listen and pick up on student's needs and the best way to teach them.
