The effects of courseware learning for children with learning difficulties have been studied over the years. Educational courseware is very common nowadays as a teaching tool for children’s early education. However, most of the coursewares are designed for children with normal learning ability. Special children who face difficulty in the learning process are unable to utilize the courseware effectively due to their learning problems. This paper presents findings from a study that investigated the effects of persuasive designed mobile courseware on children with learning difficulties compared to traditional teaching method. Persuasive design aims to change their behaviour in using the courseware by attracting them to continuously utilize the courseware in the learning process. Various persuasive design principles are being implemented in the courseware. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of persuasive design implemented in the courseware towards children with learning difficulties. The subject focus in this study is Malay language subject which is the national language of Malaysia. This research aims to assist the educators and parents in teaching special children to improve their learning progress from time to time.
