ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the effectiveness of microcomputer applications in learning instruction for mildly handicapped learners. The effects of microcomputers instruction are hypothesized and systematic variables were examined to specify the microcomputer effects for various populations of elementary school users. It also discusses selected MicroEducational Environment that is perceived to be effective for mildly handicapped and nonhandicapped children. Several inferences, drawn from empirical works being reviewed, that may assist teachers in maximizing specific academic and social outcomes for mildly handicapped students through microcomputer applications were presented.
