What our users say

"The controls to write our own sentences are familiar as we have used Special Stories so often. We use it to support her learning to structure simple questions which is our current target, and match it to the books she loves to read.”

Andrea, Parent and Speech Therapist

“I thought this was an excellent app that could entirely be tailored to the user’s needs. The sentence can be as short or complex as you wish. I particularly like the fact the punctuation is included and reinforced.”
