In 1985, the Institute for Educational Technology (ITD-CNR) in Genoa, created BSD - Biblioteca del Software Didattico the only public Italian library for educational software. The objective of BSD, which now contains more than 2000 products, is to collect, evaluate and disseminate information and know-how on the most significant Italian and foreign software packages for didactic purposes. Several research projects have been conducted within the context of BSD; one of these (within the framework of the European Commission project Helios) has regarded the functional evaluation of didactic software for disabled students. This article summarises some of the conclusions drawn from this project with respect to the employment of educational software as a support for special education and as a tool for the integration of disabled students into mainstream education. We also try to answer the question: 'Educational software for the disabled: does it exist?'
