For Parents

And Carers

Special iApps was founded and developed by parents and we understand the unique challenges and momentous milestones of being a parent and raising children.

Our apps allow you to create something WITH your child and not FOR your child, which is incredibly important to help develop their independence and confidence, as they become the ones in charge of their learning journey. Whether you have an iPad, iPhone, Android device or Amazon tablet, we have educational apps for you!

Monitor your child's progress


Our apps allow children to show how much they really know, and provide parents and those who support them to see their strengths and areas of development. 

Support every stage of life


If they need some extra support through school transitioning, explaining new situations in life, or a new way to complete their schoolwork, our apps provide children the tools needed to thrive in life.
