This approach identifies and discusses the fundamental concepts of learning, motivation, learning disabilities, the Theory of Multiple Intelligences, computer games, and intelligent computer-aided learning ICAL. These concepts are then integrated into the design of a model that manipulates these concepts to teach reading skills. The result of this effort is CAPER Computer-Assisted Personal Education Resource. It is model of a system that will a identify the individuals dominant learning styles, b tailor the instruction and presentation to those styles, and C present the lessons in an interactive game-like style will retain the childs interest and enhance the learning process
