Abstract: Assistive technology does not cure a specific learning disability. These tools are allowing a student with learning disabilities to demonstrate their intelligence and knowledge. Assistive technology for the person with learning disabilities is a made-to-fit implementation. Trial and error may be required to find a set of appropriate tools and techniques for a specific individual. Therefore this paper is aimed to attest the use of assistive technology: Thai Spell Checker program which enhanced students with learning disabilities in their writing. This paper will also depict the details of the design and development of assistive technology tool, including information on the experiment with real users. The results from the study show that the assistive technology tool has a correct rate of 89% for detecting misspelling words. Additionally results indicate that the students have writing improvement in Thai language as 75%, 15%, 30%, 70%, and 35%.
