The uses of the internet by teenagers with a physical disability
Topic: The prevalence of internet use amongst youngsters has spawned extensive research. It has become apparent in the course of reviewing existing literature that majority of the research is repeatedly focused on providing an understanding of non-disabled youngster’s use of the internet, producing little research on those youngsters with a disability. Having recognised the paucity of research on young people with physical disabilities this study aimed to elicit their online activities and also how their parents and teaching staff construct them as young online users.
