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.
