Getting On Line Without a Computer or Internet Access at Home Introduction In today's world, there are many resources that are available to parents on the internet. Parents can find out about child development, help for children with special needs, positive parenting, health coverage, and many other important issues about your children. Parents can also get information about jobs and job training, immigration, and government benefits. But what can parents do if you don't have a computer or internet access at home? There's an easy and free answer - your local public library! Internet Access at Public Libraries Ninety-five percent of public libraries offer free access to computers and the internet. Public library patrons use library computers to learn basic computer and Internet skills. There is no reason to worry or be embarrassed about things like cost or lack of knowledge about how to use the Internet. Use of library computers and internet services is FREE! Librarians can provide one-on-one training. This informal, personal assistance can help you learn basic computer and Internet skills while you are looking for information. Some libraries even provide formal Internet training classes or workshops on basic computer skills, word processing, or using different databases. If you read and speak only Spanish, you may be wondering whether or not it's worth your while to try to get onto the internet. With the new Traducelo Ahora (Translation Now) program now available through a grant from IBM to the Statewide Parent Advocacy Network (SPAN), the answer is yes! This free program gives you the ability to translate emails and websites from English to Spanish and Spanish to English using any computer that has access to the internet. An email that you send in Spanish can be translated into English. When that person responds back to you in English, it will be translated into Spanish. This program will help you become an effective advocate; find information on jobs, health, human services and other resources quickly and easily; and communicate with your child(ren)'s doctors, teachers, and other service providers. ...read more.
