Teach Keyboarding!

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013
9 AM Pacific, Noon Eastern

Center for Accessible Technology has been successfully teaching keyboarding to youth with learning challenges for the past 15 years. Find out what's worked for us.

Schools that do "teach" this skill often do so by sitting students in front of computers with pre-programmed software.
