"Mobile Learning for All is a unique book that every classroom teacher should read! It’s full of practical uses of the many accessibility features on mobile devices to meet the needs of all students, especially those with disabilities."

Debi Gartland, Professor of Special Education
Towson University

"This is a major contribution to the fields of special education and rehabilitation. It is a wonderful resource for individuals with disabilities, their advocates and their families, and for educators and other professionals. Well done!"

J. David Smith, Professor Emeritus
University of North Carolina at Greensboro, VA

"If I had the opportunity to purchase this book, I would purchase enough to give to all my team mates their own copy. Then I would have book groups and working meetings so we could all try out the many apps, with this book as our guide. Almost as good as having the author make the presentations about how to implement the iPad, UDL principles and best practice into our special education classes!"

Cheryl S. Oakes, Resource Room Teacher
Wells High School, DE
