4 Apps in This Bundle



The Special Collection bundle brings together our award-winning apps to encourage learning, at a discounted price. They are transforming the lives of children with learning disabilities and additional needs around the world.

We work closely with parents, teachers, speech and language pathologists to develop our apps, which we say "enable errorless learning in small steps without distractions".

Special Words: Designed for communication and language development, this is an invaluable app for visual learners to promote language acquisition, word, picture and sound recognition, speech and sight-reading.

Special Stories: Easily create your own social stories, visual schedules or wonderful memories, all fully personalized with your own photos, text and audio. It’s also a great tool for home-school communication! The possibilities of this app are endless. *

Special Numbers: Develop vital early number skills such as counting, matching, ordering and comparing, with the range of activities this app has to offer. It is easily adaptable for all abilities and configurable to a child’s current developmental stage.

Match & Find: Working memory is very important for the development of language and numeracy. The carefully designed activities within this app can help children train and improve their auditory and visual working memory.
