Assistive technology help. (Respond).

R DM is searching for information on what kind of computer to get for her home, especially one that is able to use the Internet and is compatible with having a cause-and-effect device installed for programs.

I believe that every state has technology assistance centers. Here in Florida, where we are known for having few resources, we have two excellent centers for technology, FAAST and ATEN. You should be able to find out how to contact the center in your state by looking in EP's annual resource guide. These types of centers were all listed together in one area. I recommend working with a non-profit center rather than going to a commercial web site because the former has no financial interest in your purchasing any specific product. I also advise you to work with a center where you can visit and see things first hand.--CH via e-mail
