Keyboard Recommendations for Parkinson's

My HS Wrestling Coach, also an English Professor, was asking me to look into keyboards that may help him out. He's getting to the point where his movement is causing him to have to correct words frequently, and since he spends a lot of his time editing documents and giving feedback, it's causing him some grief.

I'd appreciate any feedback that you folks have, this is an area of technology that I'm a complete novice with so I'm not sure what developments are out there that would assist him. My initial searches didn't really find any resources that spoke to this problem specifically. My thoughts are larger keys and keys that may be a little more grippy, but that's just a guess.

Please let me know any options you'd recommend. I'd love to hear what people who have experience have to say about this.
