Abstract: Technology has never more been a part of our everyday lives than it is today. Yet in another five, 10 or 20 years it will be more so - current trends in technological developments leave us in no doubt of that. Susan Greenfield has highlighted a danger for brain development when products such as the television and computers are overused. Although there is no doubt about this, we should not forget the importance that technology plays in helping many people interact, learn and advance themselves in ways that would not have otherwise been possible. Children with dyspraxic or dyslexic-type difficulties gain immeasurably from the addition of computer technology in the classroom, without which they would be at a significant disadvantage.
