Special iApps releases Android version of popular Special Words app

Special iApps has today released a new version of Special Words – suitable for Android devices. Special Words is also available for Apple iPad, iPod and iPhone devices.

The Special Words app is designed specifically for children with special needs, including children with Down syndrome. It offers various combinations of picture and word matching exercises to support the teaching of vocabulary and sight word reading (picture-picture, picture-word, word-word).

The app is extensible – supporting the creation of extensive vocabulary sets that can be shared between devices, making it an ideal resource for therapists as well as individual families.

Special Words is supplied complete with early vocabulary resources from DSE’s See and Learn Language and Reading programme with written and spoken words in 14 languages.

Special iApps is a small social enterprise, founded by the parents of a child with Down syndrome. Special iApps specialises in developing apps that children find easy to use and appealing. They design and trial their apps to ensure they are accessible to all children, including those with learning difficulties. Proceeds from the sales of their apps are reinvested in ongoing app development.

Special iApps also donates a proportion of their revenues to Down Syndrome Education International to support continuing research to benefit children with Down syndrome.
