---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a custom adapted keyboard rest for an individual with autism and communication disabilities. This individual uses his computer as his way of “speaking” using a special keyboard with large to keys to type in words, one letter at a time. The individual’s motor control and visual control were best when the keyboard was on an angle. Unable to locate a commercially available stand to meet his needs, a custom adapted keyboard stand was designed and created. A simple wooden stand with a lip which fits the keyboard and raises it to an angle of about 24 degrees was created from plywood. TITLE: Simple but effective. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
