What People Say
The interface is clean and user-friendly ... there are a number of other special features that make this app stand out from others in its category.
Working as a teacher of students with disabilities, incorporating social stories is key to the learning process. I utilise social stories for teaching positive behaviours and unlearning negative behaviours. Special Stories will now give my social stories more life with an even greater personalised meaning to my students.

Very impressed with this app - I spend so much time making and laminating personal books, stories and flash cards for my son, but at last, an app that does it all in the blink of an eye! SO easy to use and quick to make really motivating stories. Thank you!
My three year old daughter has Down syndrome and I have been struggling to make her picture books as the whole process on my old computer is so time consuming. This app is amazing: I made a ten page 'all about me'; story in under ten minutes and she loves it. Within a few hours of seeing it she began asking for 'all about me' in a very clear voice. This alone made it worth every penny. I highly recommend this easy to use app, it is brilliant.
