Special iApps C.I.C.

Special iApps is a social enterprise developing educational apps for children with special educational needs and in early years education. 

All our apps have a simple, uncluttered design, and can be personalised to suit any child and young adult’s abilities. They’re ideal to use at school, during speech therapy sessions, to support learning at home, or develop essential skills in daily life.

Other notes

Special iApps support parent/carers, teachers, occupational health professionals and anyone who knows a young person who could benefit from extra educational help.

All the apps are based on Early Years content and the EYFS curriculum, but can be easily personalised and adjusted to suit any level of capability and age. The activities within each app encourage interaction and communication, and can be controlled by parents without interruption of the task at hand.
