14-year old Whitney pushes herself to master new computer skills with intense determination, despite multiple disabilities. Upon losing here sight at age nine in class four, Whitney had to begin her education all over again from nursery school to learn Braille. In addition, Whitney has left-side paralysis which requires right-hand only computer adaptation.
After staying at home for five years in total blindness, Whitney’s interest in learning was not lost. She works diligently to complete new Braille lessons, as well as the inABLE computer program curriculum.
Whitney’s passion for her computer education grows daily. Whenever her mother comes to the school for a visit, Whitney eagerly demonstrates her newest computer skills.
The strength and persistence that Whitney displays is remarkable. Her computer learning progress exemplifies how computer labs at special-needs schools enhance the learning opportunities for a wide-range of students.
