    I need some tips--I have two MMD high school students in a "Computer Applications and Technology" course with no special ed support due to lack of staffing. The classroom teacher is one of our best to work with as far as making accommodations and modifications, and we're working together on this problem: what accommodations can be made to account for their learning disability when it comes to computer tasks? We're working on an audio text and they have access to the teacher and peers for readign when needed, but we're hoping someone has developed some specific methods for setting up computer assignments (creating PowerPoints, or formatting in Word, for example) so they're more acceptable for students with disabilities. Any ideas? Or does anyone know of a computer program that is effective in allowing students with reading/written expression/processing issues to create computer products as an alternate assignment?
