Here's a great opportunity to help your child with writing struggles and another child in another country gain access to technology.
From what I have read the XO is a child friendly, rugged, power friendly laptop that could aide children with fine motor issues.
Here's the link to give 1 get 1 limited opportunity during Nov.
You also should google around and read the various reviews written by young people explaining advantages and drawbacks of this computer to see if it meets your child's needs. My guess is it would certainly meet some of most children's needs and that's a good enough reason to participate because the knock on effect will also be felt by children with less access to technology around the world. The keyboard looks very child friendly.
