Mobile Technology has enabled the creation of mobile learning tools and applications to assist learning especially for special groups of users such as students with learning disabilities (SLD). SLD, as children who are not performing up to the level of intelligence, are classified as having difficulties in learning. It includes several categories such as Down syndrome (DS), Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Mental Retardation and specific learning difficulties such as Slow Learner (SL) and Dyslexia. Dyslexic students usually have a poor-short-term memory, difficulties with reading, spelling, writing and numeracy problem. Main objective of this paper is to identify and evaluate the selected English learning mobile application/apps (MA) for dyslexic students. The researchers aim to identify the appropriate MA to that suit to dyslexic method of learning. In the evaluation, user study will be conducted. The research instruments that will be used are such as observation and video recording towards dyslexic student using the MA and interview with their teachers. Preliminary study through observation revealed that the dyslexic students enjoyed learning using English MA. The researchers believe that using English MA can be used to support learning for dyslexic children. Following this study, more studies will be conducted to evaluate the suitable interface development of MA that suits dyslexic children.
