Apps to help with learning

Creative activities and play help toddlers explore and express emotions, develop imagination, and practise social skills.

We’ve provided a range of simple and fun child development activities to try at home:

Useful dyslexia apps

DyslexiaUK have pulled together a collection of apps that have been specifically created for, or found to be particularly useful for people with dyslexia.

They have been grouped according to their main purpose and also as to whether they are available for Apple (IOS) or Android.

Some also offer Google Chrome extensions, so can be used on a desktop computer or laptop.

Useful autism apps

The Good Schools Guide have pulled together a range of useful apps for learners who have autism. They include apps for Apple (IOS) and Android.

Useful apps for the visually impaired

A guide by RNIB to accessible apps, and what apps can do for blind and partially sighted users. There are also specific apps for the visually impaired you may find useful.

There are apps for both Apple (IOS) and Android.

Many apps for blind and partially sighted people use the device camera to provide a huge variety of services. Although this is achieved by using the camera on the device, no sight is required to operate the app as spoken feedback is available on the specialist apps developed for people with sight loss.
