Special iApps turns 7 - Our Blog

September 1, 2018

Special iApps is 7 years old today! The time has certainly flown by and there have been many exciting developments over this past year.

As we're sure you all know by now, back in June, Bev was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the Queen's Birthday Honours List 2018. She was awarded the MBE for her services to exports in educational technology for people with learning disabilities. It is incredibly well deserved and we're all very proud that her hard work is recognized in such a way.

Over this past year, Special iApps has also expanded. We welcomed Dan Gilchrist as our Sales and Marketing Manager and Rebecca Whitcombe as our Digital and Social Media Coordinator. We're very excited for the year ahead with our growing team and look forward to seeing what is to come.

Two of our apps were also finalists in the Bett Awards 2018 back in January. Special Stories was a Finalist in the Special Educational Needs Solutions category and Special Words in the International Digital Education Resource category.

We also added Special Words Pro and Special Words Web to our repertoire. The Web edition of the original app allows you to "try before you buy" for 28 days. This is a limited version of the app but great if you just want to get a feel of what Special Words can do. The Pro edition is fantastic for teachers, therapists, professionals and parents who are looking to get more out of the app with their children.

Today we have also moved into our lovely new office in the Old Rectory at Houghton-le-Spring, pictured here. It's a 15-minute drive from where we were in Durham. To go with the new office we have a new telephone number. From the UK: 0191 389 6638. From abroad: +44 191 389 6638. Outside of UK business hours, you can leave a message, or contact us in other ways.
