Special Words with assistive switches

The iPad has built in support for switches. However, this is optimized for adults, and can be too difficult for children to master. Some apps for children with disabilities, including most of ours, have dedicated switch support, to empower children to use this assistive technology.

To use the switch facilities in any of these apps, you must first turn off Switch Control in the Accessibility section of the iPad's Settings app, otherwise the device's built in switch support will take control.

Not all of the facilities in our apps are switch-enabled. An adult who can use a touch screen will need to operate the iPad to adjust settings and add personalized content.

All of our apps are great educational resources for children who can learn to use an iPad touch screen, including many with cerebral palsy.

Most of our apps are also available for Android tablets as well as iPads, and many can also be used on iPhone, iPod touch and Android smartphones.

We aim to break down learning into manageable steps, with uncluttered apps that you can easily adapt as your child develops.
