CVI and low acuity and right hemiplegia adn technology - anyone else?
on 11/23/2009 1:16:28 AM.
My daughter is nearly 11 and has CVi and 3/60 vision and also mild right hemiplegia. We have not come across anyone else in New Zealand where we live and are having difficulties know where to go educationally - re learning to read, technology available etc. She is writing but has a lot of trouble re reading her illegible writing and spelling. She has to hold books up to her nose to read them. She does use a CCTV a school but not that much. She cannot type as too hard to see the screen and keys at same time and can't really use right hand apart from thumb and forefinger.
We are looking a getting a touch screen computer for home but they are seem to only just hitting the market and we are going to wait and see if Apple put one out. In the meantime we may buy her an i touch as she seems to be able to use that a little. (just to keep her entertained while out as she cannot watch any sport etc)
Anyone else out there in similar situation?
