Happy Birthday to Special Words!

Six years today we launched our first app, Special Words.

It's now widely used in schools and in speech therapy. One father we met at an event in Parliament in 2015 told us this app had got his son to speak.

To celebrate this anniversary, we will be releasing a major update to Special Words for iPad and iPhone later this month, which will include:

  • The ability to print cards and baseboards
  • Sheets for recording progress
  • New curriculum-related resources

Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback and suggestions for improving the app, please keep sending us your great ideas! Particular thanks to all of our volunteer translators.
