Computer Camp for Kids

Why the need for computer skills and training?

The goal of this program is to provide a comfortable and receptive environment where children can acquire keyboarding skills. Many students with a learning disability have difficulties with fine-motor, visual-motor and visual spatial tasks. Our leaders are trained to understand and guide children through the process with sensitivity to their individual needs. This course offers a “go at your own speed” opportunity for children to learn the essentials of keyboarding.

For children with a learning disability, being familiar and comfortable with a computer can aid with concentration, reduce the stresses associated with school work and assist the child in recognizing and identifying his/her own accomplishments.

Overall, our week long training camp sessions will be an opportunity for individuals to learn keyboarding and/or the features of assistive technology software at their own pace and within a supportive teaching environment.

Who Is the Program Designed For?

Parent Testimonial

“Both of my sons have attended the LDATD summer typing camp. One had learning disabilities and the other did not.  Both benefitted from the small classes and learned to type properly. The staff was cheerful and professional.”
