Kid Works 2 is a reading tutorial program designed to teach children to write and illustrate their own story for individuals with a developmental or physical disability. This program combines a word processor and picture dictionary with paint tools, rubber stamps, and icons that allow students to express themselves through words and pictures as they write original stories. A simple click of the mouse changes words into pictures and pictures into words. The Story illustrator lets the students "paint" pictures with special effect brushes, stamps, and line, shape and text tools. Story Player lets students listen to the story as the computer reads it out loud. They can use Icon Maker to edit their own picture-word symbols. A built in speech dictionary lets users edit and add words. This program is TouchWindow (see separate entry) accessible for students with a physical disability.
