Overall this app is an excellent way to help the user understand all the different parts to a number: the name, symbol, value and order. The different settings under each activity really help to make this a great app for users of all abilities.
Special Numbers | Reviews and Quotes
Speech Blog UK said
As with all the Special iApps, Special Numbers is well thought out, has beautiful clear images and is easy to use. However, one of the best attributes of the app is how versatile it is and how easily you can tailor it for your child / the child you are working with.
Now, obviously this app is well designed for teaching early numeracy skills, but being a speech and language therapist, I love looking at apps and seeing how I can use them in therapy. Counting is actually something I find myself doing in therapy, not to support number acquisition but to help with sound production. Even just going through the numbers 1-10, you have a good range of sounds at the beginning and ends of words and those tricky /f/ and /s/ sounds.

This app was really popular with our testers, who really enjoyed practicing their maths skills. Children loved the round of applause when they answered correctly and this really helped to spur them on! There are lots of games to choose from and this variety helps keep children interested in practicing over and over again.
