The purpose of this thesis is to develop a high-level model to create self-adapting software which teaches learning-disabled (LD) children to read. This approach identifies and discusses the fundamental concepts of learning, motivation, learning disabilities, the Theory of Multiple Intelligences, computer games, and intelligent computer-aided learning (ICAL). These concepts are then integrated into the design of a model that manipulates these concepts to teach reading skills. The result of this effort is CAPER (Computer-Assisted Personal Education Resource). It is model of a system that will: (a) identify the individual's dominant learning styles, (b) tailor the instruction and presentation to those styles, and (C) present the lessons in an interactive game-like style will retain the child's interest and enhance the learning process.
