Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In this study, the authors developed educational support software and devices for physically handicapped children with intellectual disabilities. The software was aimed at facilitating students in learning mathematics, English (words, grammar) and Japanese character (Hiragana, Katakana, Kanji) through the use of computer graphic animations and sounds. The authors also developed software for the purpose of drilling and practicing mathematics, English, and Japanese. Using this drill and practice software, the teacher is able to check the ratio of correct answers from the student’s record. Though the teacher can manually select materials from the software for teaching, the software is also able to adjust materials to match the capabilities of the learner. The authors also developed communication software in order to communicate smoothly with the students. These software and input devices were utilized at a special support school in Kurume, Japan, at which, university students from the host institution assisted children in using the software in a classroom. The learning process of the children was videotaped and analyzed. In this article the authors describe the results of the educational support software and evaluate its effectiveness.
