Abstract—Information Communication Technology (ICT) is widely viewed as playing an integral part in the lives of students and fundamental to the progress of current education systems and the development of 21st century skills. Assistive technology has given children with learning disabilities and their parents great hope of participation, mutuality and equal opportunities mirroring inclusive classroom practices. Therefore, this research study examined the impact Apple iPad technology has on fostering new learning opportunities for young adolescents with disabilities specifically in regards to learning engagement and independent educational opportunities as viewed by two special education teachers.
