Apps for Children with Down Syndrome
Children with Down syndrome find iPads and other tablets very engaging. However, without the right apps they can easily become frustrated and disillusioned.
Our apps are different, and can really help your child learn:
- Developed by parents who have children with Down syndrome
- Visually clear and simple: no distracting backgrounds or noises
- Easily personalised, and designed to grow with your child
- Enable learning in small steps, with no negative rewards
- Recommended by Down syndrome organisations around the world
Featured App - Special Words
Develop your child's written vocabulary, speech, fine-motor skills, and more...
An award-winning app for Apple and Android with 96 pictures, and written words and audio in many languages, including UK, US and Australian English.
Fabulous learning resource. As an advisory teacher, the schools that I have shown this to have been so impressed. It caters for all children and engages even the most reluctant of students. Highly motivating and the ability to add more words is invaluable. Great value for money!
