Emerging evidence suggests mobile devices have the potential to deliver students with disabilities a more equitable education, which is one of the goals set down by the United Nations (United Nations Division for Social and Development Disability, 2006). The focus of this chapter is to explore how mobile devices can be used to support young people with communication disabilities and communication difficulties as a result of isolation. The chapter draws upon international legislation and policy documents, research literature and uses a specific case study to highlight the implications and future directions.
