Apps for Hearing Impairment

Apps our apps are designed to support children with hearing loss and impairment.

Special iApps was created by parents with direct experience of hearing impairment. Bev and Colin's son William has conductive hearing loss and has worn hearing aids from when he was quite young.

We ensure that all our apps support children with hearing loss by having:

  • No distracting background sounds
  • Include audio that is clear and spoken slowly
  • Options are included to select when audio is used
  • All of our apps can be used without audio
  • Several apps allow you to record your own voice

What Our Users Say

“She picked up the signs very quickly. Her confidence to use her signs to communicate improved and she began initiating conversations herself. I actively encourage her to sign in group time and we teach the other children too.”
