Abstract

Computer-assisted teaching and learning is an important concept that should be incorporated and applied by each special education teacher in the teaching and learning activities to make learning fun and interactive. Application of this method towards students with special needs is not widely used compared to other typical students. Therefore, in order to determine how far the method is practiced by special education teachers, a survey is conducted. The respondents consisted of 89 special education teachers in Klang district which involved in 16 elementary schools that offer integrated special education programs. The data obtained from the questionnaire, which has been adapted from the previous studies were then analyzed by using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 20 and the results were discussed in a form of descriptive analysis including analysis of the percentage. In addition, the summary of the final data was done based on the percentage and the mean indicated. The result of the study showed that special education teachers in Klang district understand the concept of Computer-Assisted Teaching and Learning. However, there were constraints in implementing the method in teaching and learning. Adequate training should be given to special education teachers in order to improve the quality of teaching as well as to produce skilled and competent teachers in dealing with information technology's equipment. In relation to this, the results of this research can be used as a guide to empower Computer-Assisted Teaching and Learning in Integrated Special Education Program.
