Special iApps C.I.C.

Special iApps is a social enterprise developing educational apps for children with special educational needs, including autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, hearing impairment and other learning disabilities. 

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

We cater to parent/carers, Teachers, occupational health professionals and anyone who knows a young person who could benefit from extra educational help. 

Our 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.
