The rise of the technological age has opened up doors of mobility and freedom for persons with physical disabilities. Utilization of computer-assisted rehabilitation and daily living aids can often mean the difference between isolation and independence for this population. Although highly beneficial, the psychological impact that this modern machinery has had on the human being cannot be ignored. A study which investigated the effects of the implementation of a computer-assisted art/leisure activity in relationship to a similar, more traditional art program is presented. Analysis of data collected indicated that both groups responded similarly, yet important data was recorded that has pertinent implications for future study in the area of clients' reactions/interactions, program implementation/leadership, and computers.
