Bridging the gap between technology and people with disabilities

Many parents have found using mobile devices with their children who have special needs to be beneficial in numerous ways. However, finding appropriate apps for your child can be challenging and confusing. We view our website as a shortcut in that process.

Finding apps is just the first step in an exciting journey of discovery with your child that will involve trial and error. We encourage you to be involved with your child as s/he acquires new skills and gains confidence.
