Special iApps

Special iApps have apps which are suitable for children with special educational needs, including:

  • autism
  • down syndrome
  • cerebral palsy
  • hearing impairment
  • dyslexia and dyspraxia

The apps are based on the EYFS curriculum and can be easily personalised to suit different ages and needs. They help children learn words, numbers, colours, shapes and emotions.

The activities within each app also encourage interaction and communication, and can be controlled by parents.

Who the service provides for

The apps are aimed at children with special education needs aged 0 to 5.

They can be used by parents at home or in settings and schools.

How the service is accessed

You can download the apps from the Apple App Store (for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch), from the Google Play Store (for Android tablets, phones and for Chromebooks), and from the Amazon Appstore (for Amazon Kindle Fire and Fire tablets).
