Special Stories is an excellent app and definitely one of the best of its type on the market.
The app is particularly useful for creating social stories for children with Autism or Down syndrome.
However, the ways in which Special Stories can be used is not limited to social stories alone and the app can be used for a variety of literacy purposes.
Reviews of Special Stories
Fundamentally Children said
We loved the way the app could be tailored to the needs of a specific child, with so many different options. It can be used to create a visual timetable; as a record of a specific event; as a way to develop language in a certain area; as a family photo album, and more! This feels like the kind of app users would keep coming back to.
There are so many ways to use Special Stories... creating social stories to teach social skills, showing the steps of a task procedure (hand washing, recipe, etc...), and creating talking story books.
There are a number of other special features that make this app stand out from others in its category.

If you want a universal, intuitive way of creating personalized visual sequences, an app that can easily be used solo by older children and adults that also has some fantastic functionality, then Special Stories is well worth a look. It is also switch accessible so if that's a feature you need then buy the app because it is terrific.
