Abstract

This paper explores the use of handhelds as effective assistive device for students with mild disabilities. Through a grant form Verizon the Texas Center for Educational Technology has provided handhelds for middle school students with mild disabilities served in inclusion classrooms. To date, the handhelds have been effective at providing: a management system, an option for communication among, the learner, teachers and parents and a platform for learning high frequency words. Data collected on the effectiveness of handhelds as an assistive device is most promising.
