    Mouse for Special Needs Student

    Hi

    I'm urgently looking for a supplier of special needs designed mice.

    the best thing for this student would be a slightly larger than normal mouse with one button (left click). He has down's and finds the normal mice problematic.

    Failing that does anyone have any good suppliers of this kind of thing? I see the odd catalogue sometimes but rarely keep them

    Thanks

    Phil

    Saw these at a show last year. Might be of use.

    What about a trackball?

    A trackball might work but I think they want a mouse really.

    Don't think this is larger but it is a single button, from my OT/SEN bookmark folder... Bit pricey for what it is IMHO but if you're desperate -

    Not used them for the mice but we have ordered plenty of Alphasmarts from them (ack!)

    You might also find this freebie is handy -

    Thanks out to lunch that looks like the kind of thing they wanted.

    Thanks again for everyone's suggestions
