Technology and Written Productivity

The Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy published a research review on the effects of technology use to support written productivity in children with learning disabilities.  A search revealed 27 papers that met inclusion criteria.  The evidence in favor of using technology to support written productivity was a moderately low level and inconclusive.  Trends did suggest a positive influence of some technology on children's performance and behavior.  The authors of the study concluded that high quality research with newer technologies is needed.
