Description Special education is one of the educational fields in which technology plays a significant role. Mobile technologies change our lifestyles as well as the way we learn. Mobile learning is the use of mobile technologies alone or in combination with other information and communication technologies to enable learning any-where, anytime. The purpose of this study is to determine the recent trends in special education through mobile learning. Technology integration studies in the literature generally focus on visual dictionaries, sign language, vocabulary exer-cises or story books. Besides, it is seen that the studies report the results, not the process. However, there are few studies describing the whole technology integra-tion process with a holistic approach. The study is conducted employing docu-ment analysis and related content analysis among the qualitative research method-ology. Through the search conducted on Scopus database with the keywords "mobile learning and special education" the study is based on the analysis of the documents published. All articles published in scopus were examined. Their dis-tribution by the years, subject areas, document types, country/regions and the af-filiated universities of the authors themes have been examined. The varied find-ings reveal that the analysis of the studies published on Scopus database is im-portant in terms of content for the significance of special education through mo-bile learning. Mobile learning method used in special education is among the ef-fective results. However, only a few researches have been conducted..
