My Special Needs Network

A network to share best practices for children with special needs

There is a real need for many parents and teachers of struggling learners to have a “ready list” of apps when special learning challenges present themselves. Last December, we posted an article on our blog with our first list of special needs apps. Many of our readers have mentioned their appreciation for this list and continue to use its apps daily. You can still access the first list from that article.

As spring quickly approaches, we thought this would be a good time to offer these parents and teachers (with very little time of their own) a new list or basket of good, general apps for special needs.

We hope you will find this second list to be helpful, too. Please feel free to tell us about other apps not listed in the comment boxes to follow. We’ll be glad to post them, too!
