Special Education Apps in the App Store


For educators in special education, perusing the apple app store for relevant applications to use with students can be a time consuming task.  While the app store has an Education section to the app store, it does not have a Special Education category listed.  Many special education educators have begun creating their own recommended lists of special education apps. These apps span across multiple categories in the iTunes App store.  Apple has finally heard the needs of special educators and in its commitment to special education, it has created a Special Education section in the iTunes App store.  It is not yet a main category in the app store, nor is it a subcategory of Education.  This may be because the apps in Special Education currently bridge multiple categories in the App Store.  The list currently contains 30+ apps.   If you would like to learn about more apps for special education, you should visit Mobile Learning for Special Needs.   They review apps, accessories and resources for special needs and mobile learning.  They currently have listed 60+ apps, accessories, links, and discussions.
