A Handy Chart Featuring Over 30 iPad Apps for Students with Special Needs

Today we spent sometime going through our archive looking for special needs apps we have shared here in the past and ended up with the chart below. These are apps we would recommend for teachers and parents of kids with learning disabilities. We have arranged the apps into four main categories: apps for dyslexic learners, apps for autistic learners, apps for the visually impaired and apps for learners with writing difficulties.
