Tuesday 7 February 2017 is Safer Internet Day. To help you stay safe online, we've brought together some useful online resources.

Useful special education needs apps for the iPad

Here are some apps that families and our training professionals use.  These could come in handy when using tablets and iPads with your family:

YouTube Kids

The official YouTube Kids app is designed for curious little minds to dive into a world of discovery, learning and entertainment. This is a delightfully simple app, where kids can discover videos, channels and playlists they love.

Morfo 3D face booth

Morfo allows you to make a talking 3D face from a photo of anyone, then record and send videos to friends and family. This app could improve understanding of facial emotions or as a communication tool.

SENspeller – The autism spelling app

SENspeller assists children to recognise words and spell them correctly, in an environment that can be customised to suit each child’s individual requirements.

FIND ME

Find Me is an app designed to help young children with autism practice simple social skills. The aim of the game is to find the person in the scene and tap on them. As the levels increase, it becomes harder to spot the person as more and more distracting thing (plants, animals, toys) appear in the scene.

Touch Trainer

Touch Trainer is a simple cause and effect app designed for anyone just learning about touch screen technology. This is a great, easy to use "first app" that teaches single finger fine motor skills as well as cause and effect.
