Our outstanding apps encourage learning through action and are proven to dramatically improve attainment levels. We work very closely with parents, teachers, speech and language therapists, and many other professionals to develop all our apps, which we say enable errorless learning, in small steps, without distractions.
Beverley and Colin Dean founded Special iApps in 2011, as they couldn't find the apps they needed to teach their younger son William, who has Down syndrome and autism. They found that most apps had too much going on in the background, weren't configurable or easily personalised, and didn't cater for William's limited finger skills. Several years later, our apps are now using in over 25 languages and in more than 100 countries worldwide.
