Augmented Reality (AR) is an emerging technology thriving in recent years. The implementation of AR in education offers great opportunities to enhance educational environments achieving better learning outcomes. As students with learning disabilities struggle with reading comprehension, an AR learning environment provides them support to better understand texts they actually read. Even though few studies have tried to explore the impact of AR technology to reading comprehension for students with learning disabilities in Secondary Education, there is a lack of research grounded in the incorporation of learning theories and personalization technologies. The goal of this paper is to present an AR educational environment capable of supporting meaningful learning outcomes by taking into consideration each student special educational needs and learning style. The novelty of this study lies in the student-centered and personalized design, which leads to improved understanding, student interaction and self-learning.
