This paper explores the use of handhelds as effective assistive devices for students with mild disabilities who have issues with self-monitoring. Through a grant from Verizon, the Texas Center for Educational Technology has provided handhelds for middle school students with mild disabilities served in inclusion classrooms. Using single-subject design the handhelds have proven effective at providing self-management systems for students with mild learning and behavioral disabilities. Examples of the templates developed for the self-management program will be provided. Opportunities for generalizing the results of the study will be discussed
