Abstract

The success of teaching a person to type who is handicapped depends upon making the best possible use of whatever the person has. Individual differences should be considered in teaching handicapped students to use the typewriter. The handicapped students should be taught to maintain, insofar as possible, the same mental and physical posture at the typewriter as that of the non-handicapped students.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The problem of this study was to determine whether the handicapped students at the Hearne High School could be taught to typewrite as efficiently as the non-handicapped students. The purpose of this study, therefore, was to determine whether the handicapped students could master straight copy and production typewriting assignments.

THE SUBPROBLEM

The problems of this study were broken into the following subproblems:

The first subproblem. The first subproblem was to determine whether the handicapped students at the Hearne High School could master straight copy writings as efficiently as the non-handicapped students.

The second subproblem. The second subproblem was to determine whether the handicapped students at the Hearne High School could master production assignments as efficiently as the non-handicapped.

THE HYPOTHESES

The following hypotheses were formulated and used to generate data for this study:

The first hypothesis. The first hypothesis was that handicapped students' grades do not differ from non-handicapped students on straight copy writings.

The second hypothesis. The second hypothesis was that handicapped students' grades do not differ from non-handicapped students on production assignments.
