11 The computer has made school a lot easier now. I don’t need an assistant teacher to do it for me, it makes me more independent. If I didn’t have the computer, I probably wouldn’t have made it to grade 8 because all of my work is done on the computer. Brendan SD 69

12 It has helped cause I can’t really write on paper and it has helped with spelling and I don’t lose my work cause it is all saved. It helps a lot because I don’t have to write ‘cause it is hard for me. So is spelling. I would tell them that it helps me with spelling, writing, and makes everything easier to keep organized. Jae SD 69

13 I want to tell people that I feel good using the computer. I feel like 007. It is fun. SD 69
