The utilization of learning media application to the students with special needs would be done through the measurement of User Experience Questionnaire (UEQ), and obtained the excellent value on application appeal, content clarity, efficiency and accuracy, and good value for stimulation and novelty. It can be concluded that the application of learning media based on the serious games for learning media to write can be used as learning tools
