Summary

Thirty-four papers from a 1983 conference on the use of microcomputers in special education focus on specific applications of the new technology. An overview section, section 1, includes papers on computer literacy and daily living skills, considerations for marketing software, and the role of special educators in the information age. Section 2 addresses computers in special education management, with papers on such applications as data-based behavior modification and microcomputer networks for administration and instruction. Section 3, on teacher training, includes discussions on vocational assessment and instruction and testing of generic special education concepts. Among the instructional applications considered in section 4 are computer camps, career planning, Blissymbol drill programs, and handwriting instruction. Section 5 deals with computers as tools, with papers on speech-output communication devices and alternate interface devices for physically handicapped persons. The final section, section 6, lists commercial exhibitors at the conference. Resources are categorized according to four types: general, management, instructional, and tools. (CL)
