Improving reading comprehension and fluency in students with mild disabilities has long been a challenge for educators. Technology has provided a host of new possibilities for working with students with mild disabilities. This study incorporated a mixed method to investigate the potential of using E-Readers as an instructional tool. Three features of E-Readers were thought to be of particular benefit to students with mild disabilities: (a) the ability to change the font, (b) the text to speech feature, and (c) the dictionary feature where students highlight a word and the definition pops up.
