Special iApps C.I.C

Special iApps Logo

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


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.
