Abstract

The learning impact of iPad for students with special needs has been gaining great attention in education since its inception in April 2010. Some sporadic case reports have testified how these students can benefit from the integration of iPad into their learning. However, with the wide range of students’ special needs and hundreds of iPad assistive apps available in the market, how can an educator appropriately select the right application to appropriately meet a student’s needs? Fortunately, various lists of iPad apps for special education have been documented in the literature. However, several critical questions still waited to be addressed, such as what iPad apps can be used for special education, how can the apps be practically integrated into daily instructional activities, and what are the effects of those application. The purpose of this paper is to provide special educators, professionals, and researchers with findings on the effects of iPad apps use for students with special needs.
