Intellectual disability is common and lifelong, with lifetime cost. Thus, this people have been the focus of recent major national policy developments in Europe, the USA, Australia and across high-income countries. The education of these students with disabilities now can benefit from a wider range of assistive tools. Following this unstoppable trend, this paper presents MAS, a software platform aimed to help people with severe intellectual disabilities and cerebral paralysis in their learning processes. MAS, as a technology enhanced learning platform, provides several tools that supports learning and monitoring for people with special needs, including adaptative games, data processing and monitoring tools. Installed in a special needs education institution in Madrid, Spain, MAS provides special educators with a tool that improved students education processes.
