Abstract

The right to education has become an essential human need and a basic human right, which is crucial to human development. Children with learning disabilities have also the right to expect the same standard of services and equitable access to education as every other member of the society. Rapid developments of educational technology bear huge potential of improving the quality of education for successful developments of students with special educational needs by advancing their social integration and increasing learning, as well as accessing learning. The present study addresses the strategies and approaches in use of educational technology for teaching students with learning disabilities. It is suggested that for developing such strategies, a detailed needs analysis of students with learning disabilities, well structured integration/inclusion policies, usability, accessibility, cost effectiveness and teachers’ motivation or skills necessary to use those technologies should be clearly defined.
