Disadvantages of Using The Bat One Handed Keyboard
I am a one-handed typist. I strongly feel if you have good use of one hand, you must first try to learn a system which enables you to work study, and play on a standard, normal keyboard. In the long run you will type fast and have a skill which you can use at school, work and at play. This one hand typing system is called One Hand QWERTY. This method teaches the one hand user to type on a normal keyboard, with one hand, just as fast as he would on an adaptive keyboard.
Speaking as an adult who once was that 10 year old fighting the stuff that goes on in the mind of a young person with a hand disability, I know it is MANDATORY that you do NOT try alternatives to the standard keyboard if the child has full use of one hand.
