Special Stories

Create Social Stories and Talking Books

Promote social skills, speech and sight-reading, language acquisition, as well as developing word, picture and sound recognition. 

Children and young adults often need visual instructions and guidance with social stories. Special Stories allows you to lessen the stress by using your own images, personalised words and your familiar voices to create unique books that ensure they are prepared for social situations and changes ahead. 

This app has a range of uses and is adaptable to all children, helping to encourage:

  • Development of spoken language
  • Improving reading skills
  • Creating talking books and organising photos
  • Helping with social skills
  • Explaining step-by-step tasks
  • Home-school communication
  • Sharing news with family and friends

Through our extensive range of sharing options, children, families and schools can stay more connected than ever before. You can transfer content to and from our Special Words app into Special Stories, which is a fantastic way to extend and reinforce the learning process. You can also copy your stories to Special Stories on another phone or tablet, as well as exchanging the wonderful books you have created through email, AirDrop, Wi-Fi, Dropbox and Google Drive.

The user interface and Quick Start Guide are provided in 18 languages, but the app can be used to create stories in any language.

Special Stories is available for Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, Android tablets and phones. The iOS version includes support for Bluetooth and USB-connected switches.  The Android version is compatible with Chromebooks running recent versions of Chrome     google-play.png
