  • Website Access for Literacy Development in Individuals with Disability
    "The aim of the project was to facilitate literacy development through access to World Wide Web sites that have been modified to accommodate limited literacy skills and physical access difficulties. The target group comprised individuals with physical and/or intellectual disability, often resulting in severe communication impairment (SCI), who had limitations in literacy skills (i.e., some word, sentence and text reading skills). The specific aim was to develop a model Website that (1) required basic literacy skills only; (2) incorporated a literacy training component; and (3) facilitated the use of varied alternative computer access techniques."
