Special Words / Special iApps

Category: Apps for Dyslexia and Reading Disabilities

Strategies for language development in young children and beyond are offered through Special Words Plus. Children can use the app to develop their reading and communication abilities while also showcasing their knowledge. Use the app in school to help students learn and develop new skills in the classroom, during speech therapy sessions, or at home.
Beverley and Colin Dean started the non-profit social venture Special iApps in 2011 because they couldn’t locate the educational apps they required for their youngest son William, who has Down syndrome and Autism. They discovered that most apps were unsuitable for William’s demands, had excessive background activity, and weren’t easily customizable or changeable.

Special Words / Special iApps reviews

Special Words is excellent for children with additional needs and children who learn to read using sight vocabulary and not phonics.

- Gina Robinson, Teacher

Special Words is an absolute gem of an app and I am so proud to be using it.

- Laura Corkin, Teaching Assistant

Special iApps are very good, as your advertising says, uncluttered pages, clear text etc. I liked the Special Stories app which gives students the opportunity to personalise their writing. Well done!
