Abstract

This study explored the use of the iPad 2 with high school students with disabilities, each considered a struggling reader to determine if an academic gain in reading comprehension, reading fluency, and vocabulary would be seen after implementing the intervention of an iPad and four specific applications (apps). The high school students used a combination of apps for at least 30 minutes a day alongside Second Chance Reading. A statistical comparison of data from first semester without the iPad to second semester with the iPad resulted in a significant gain in reading comprehension on the Stanford Reading Diagnostic Test.
