This is an excellent app for assisting young children in developing very beginning reading skills and preschool/school-age children in learning sight words.
Reviews of Special Words
Educational App Store said
The app’s interface is clear and distraction free, especially important for children with learning difficulties. The app is intuitive, performs well in all activities and the compatibility with accessibility features are excellent.
Fundamentally Children said
Our little testers really enjoyed playing the app, especially the praise when they got the answer right! Parents loved that they could customise the app with their own words, pictures and sounds; this means that the app can be used to support sight words being learned in school.
In our educational centre, we are using it with some very young children and we are getting good results, as it is attractive to them, simple to use, and allows us to address different aspects such as visual matching, global reading, visual discrimination, and so on.

I am very pleased with the progress of my children with severe speech disorders. They will not be able to follow a system where they sound out the letters in a word – they need a whole word approach and this app is a fantastic start for them.
