Computers can be an effective teaching method for students with learning disabilities (LD). The use of mobile devices as education tools for students with disabilities has received considerable attention in special education recently. Parents, teachers, and professionals look for effective applications (i.e., apps) that meet the needs of their children and students. This is often challenging for them due to the large number of education apps that are available in the market. This article introduces and describes an evaluation rubric developed to help parents, teachers, and other professionals evaluate apps for students with LD.
