Apple adds special education section to App Store

Tuesday, 9 November 2010 09:40am

If you are interested in special education apps for iOS devices, visit Apple’s ’Special Education’ section in the iTunes App Store.

The section contains over 80 applications in 10 categories for disabilities and special needs: sign language, communication, accessible readers, diagnostics and reference, emotional development, seeing and hearing, language development, literacy and learning, organisation and life skills.

Apple also has a section of their website that discusses the use of Apple devices in special education.

At the recent Assistive Technology Industry Association conference held in the US, there was much talk and excitement around how new apps like those found in the Special Education section of the iTunes store can be created and integrated with mainstream devices such as the iPad.
