The United Nations has designated 1981 the International Year for Disabled Persons. It is therefore appropriate that Computer is dedicating its first issue of the year to computing and the handicapped. The evolution of lowcost computing technology promises an unprecedented spectrum of opportunities for the developmentally disabled. From aids to independent living to flexible tools that can greatly increase the variety and quality of job opportunities, the rapidly evolving field of computing is pregnant with possibilities. To help turn these possibilities to reality, Johns Hopkins University is conducting a national search/contest in applications of computers for the handicapped.
