The Bat Keyboard
If you have good use of one hand, you must first try to learn a system that enables you to work, study, and play on a standard, normal keyboard. This one hand typing system is called One Hand QWERTY.
This method teaches the one hand user to type on a normal keyboard, with one hand, just as fast as he would on an adaptive keyboard.
If you are searching for options for a young person with a hand disability, then it is MANDATORY that you do NOT try alternatives to the standard keyboard if the child has full use of one hand. Child typists and Assistive Technology and Adaptive Keyboards
