In spite of the current proliferation of the use of computers in education in the Arab world, complete suites of solutions for students with special needs are very scarce. This paper presents an assistive system managing learning content for children with moderate to mild intellectual disabilities. The system provides educational multimedia contents, inspired from the local environment, in different subjects such as math, science, religion, daily life skills, and others to target specific learning goals suitable for this group of learners. The system tracks the individual student progress against the student individualized learning plan assigned by the specialized teacher and according to the learner abilities. Upon completion of learning a particular task, the system will test the learner to order a set of sub-tasks in its logical sequence necessary to successfully accomplish the main task. The system also facilitates deploying intelligent tutoring algorithms to automatically correct mistakes after a number of trials working adaptively with the learner to successfully learn how to complete the task.
