  • Customisable settings to suit individual needs and abilities

Special Words Plus and Special Stories Plus both offer the option to use the OpenDyslexic font. You can also use any of the standard fonts on your device. They're great for teaching dyslexic students sight words and a range of language skills.

All our apps are designed to be easy to use for children who have difficulties with fine and gross motor skills, and problems with hand-eye co-ordination. Our apps respond to the child's intention when tapping or dragging, even if they place more than one finger on the screen or are unable to position items accurately.

What Our Users Say

"One of our pupils does not read or write so checking and questioning understanding is very difficult. He responded very quickly and positively to Special Words, without it we would have no idea exactly what he is capable of achieving"

Ms Watts, Teaching Assistant

"I think the fact that the apps are so interactive, so simple and so easily personalised makes them a fantastic addition to any classroom. Apps that can be easily adapted to include lessons are invaluable as most of the work is actually done by the app, saving valuable classroom time."
