Computers Aid Children with Disabilities

Posted by marmara on September 5, 2010

In El Cerrito, California a group of parents, teachers and developers of assistive technology joined forces in 1983 and created the Disabled Children’s Computer Group (DCCG) with the goal of using computer technology to help those with disabilities to more easily speak, write, read, learn, and become a participant in the larger world around them.

Steve and Jackie Brand spearheaded the efforts to develop ways that computers could be used to assist adults and children with disabilities. They were inspired by the needs of their own daughter, Shoshana, who they felt could benefit enormously with the assisted technologies that computers had the potential to offer. Steve Brand took a sabbatical off from his job at Berkeley High School, and with his friend Steve Gensler they developed a large, flat keyboard for use by someone with fine motor skill deficits.

With their initial success the Brands decided to share what they learned about assisted technology with others in similar circumstances. Their first community wide meeting was held in Berkeley and attended by over 100 interested parents, teachers, computer experts, and adults with disabilities. In 1985 the DCCG was granted non-profit status, and was soon being contacted from people across the country. Apple computer company was an early sponsor, and they developed the original Apple IIe which could say text out-loud when an Echo Speech Synthesizer was hooked up to it and appropriate software from UCLA was developed.

So it seems the Federal Government, and also some contemporary can befriend with odorless and low mobility in mind. When the vehicles with wind or solar power and help to smooth the Schwank Unken of regenerative feed, is all helped. 1 million approved electric vehicles are the target of the Federal Government in the year 2020. Could we buy it already today, the manufacturer immediately every month should produce more than 8000 of them to achieve this goal.

We are still far away at the moment. But all over the world working with high pressure. Boy Scouts of America has similar goals. Million electric scooters in China lead the way. The annual Conference of the VDE (Association of German electrical engineers) in Leipzig on the subject of E-mobility has once again shown: the Achilles heel of electric mobility is the battery. The reasons are obvious: reach, life, security, loading speed and the price. The security requirements in the automotive industry are high and the loads in normal operation, but above all in accidents are enormous. Future batteries must be safe in all situations. Life is crucial.

Any customer is to expect it to buy a new battery tray for 5000-15000 every 2 years! But already the cost when buying a new vehicle are still much too high. Even with further positive economic recovery, the money of the customers still not loose. Without push by the State, the necessary economies of scale will be probably cannot be achieved. And that it is crucial. But there is to say much positive. The massive promotion launched by the Federal Government to fruition. “At the meeting power battery solutions for automotive and energy supply” much new will be heard. 1st-2nd March 2011 meeting in Aachen of battery experts and those who want to be there to discuss the latest developments. The bilingual event will take place already for the fourth time instead. Prof. Sauer of the RWTH Aachen University and Prof. Winter from Munster have the lead. Over 100 posts almost twice as many as in the previous year were submitted and once again show the importance of the topic and the event. The day before, so at the euros, battery day is reports on the North Rhine-Westphalia on the activities in the field of battery research and development in North Rhine-Westphalia. The Minister for innovation, science and research, Mrs. Svenja Schulze, has taken over the patronage and will welcome this event.

Immense variety materials – from traditional to of sophisticated technical equipment, up to computers and lasers. Not uncommon in kinetic installations used a mirror. Often, the illusion of movement created by changing light – here Kineticism merges with op-art. Kineticism techniques are widely used for exhibitions, fairs, discos, the design of squares, parks, public interiors.
