This book provides a description of a range of apps that promote learning across a number of areas for students with special needs in grades K to 12. The apps are organized by instructional focus, and by whether they were developed to help the student practice the specific skill, support the student if they has difficulties with that skill, or create amazing learning objects using that skill.
