I have a contact at Ryerson University here in Toronto who runs the rather large research program which specifically works in the area of human device interaction for technology  for severely disabled children, but he does not currently work with the XO because of the small form-factor.  Would you still like me to forward this to him as he might have some insight for you.  He's a big open-source advocate.

Subject: [Sugar-devel] Help needed for childrens with physi
	cals limitations / ayuda para niños con discapaci

Hi all, I want to show you the first working prototype of mouseCAM
activity, wich is design to help childrens with physical limitations.
This activity communicates directly with the X server of the
GNU/Linux, being able to be use in the XO computer with any activity
or with the sugar system as well as any GNU/Linux with the graphic X
server system. We are working at Faculty of Engineering, UdelaR,
Uruguay in a course called NEXO with the aim of developing solutions
for childrens in a special school here in Uruguay and I am working
with Lorena, Guillermo and María Emilia to bring solutions to the
childrens that nowdays can't use the XO computer. I need help, maybe
people in this list knows about activities with very simple mouse or
keyboard interaction, that can be used in this context. Also we are
working in a turtleart plugin, in this case the children show a image
that corresponds with a block and then the corresponding block
connects with the last block in the programming area, this will be use
to develop very simple programs, like draw geometric figures or to
control the butia robot, but is a great improve for them.

Hola a todos, quiero mostrar el primer prototipo funcional de la
actividad mouseCAM, esta actividad está diseñada para ayudar a los
niños con limitaciones físicas. La actividad se comunica directamente
con el servidor X del GNU / Linux, pudiendo ser utilizada en el
contexto de la XO con cualquier actividad o con el sistema de azúcar,
así como cualquier GNU / Linux con el sistema de ventanas X server.
Estamos trabajando en la Facultad de Ingeniería de la UdelaR, Uruguay,
en un curso llamado NEXO con el objetivo de desarrollar soluciones
para los niños en una escuela especial de aquí y junto con Lorena,
Guillermo y María Emilia estoy trabajando para aportar soluciones a
los niños que hoy en dia no pueden usar la computadora XO. Necesito
ayuda, tal vez la gente en esta lista sabe acerca de actividades que
requieran interacción muy simple con el ratón o teclado, y que pueda
ser utilizado en este contexto. También estamos trabajando en un
plugin turtleart, en este caso los niños muestran una imagen que se
corresponde con un bloque y el bloque correspondiente se conecta con
el último bloque en el área de programación, esta se utiliza para
desarrollar programas muy simples, como sacar geométricas figuras o
para controlar el robot butia, pero es una gran mejora para ellos.
