Reviews from Parents and Professionals
“My daughter is very new to spelling, having taken a whole word reading approach so far rather than phonics and having a significant visual impairment – we have noticed that she only looks at the first letters of words. Special Spelling is worth its weight in gold as we try to introduce her to the world of spelling and looking beyond the first letters.” 
Andrea, Parent and Speech & Language Therapist

“At first I thought it would be beyond my daughter as she only recognizes a few letters but her ability to match the letters after I’d customized the levels in the settings has made this one of her favourite apps to date.” 
Suzie, Parent

  21. Hi there,
    I participated in both the giveaways but didn’t get a code even though I was one of the first commenters, was it a random drawing? Or maybe something happened?
    Thanks anyway!

    1. As this was a very popular app that was developed primarily for children with special educational needs, I decided to make is a random drawing that was weighted towards the special education community of families and educators. No one received both apps.

      As giveaways become more popular, I am trying to find new ways to make them more equitable. The good news is that as the giveaways become more popular, more developers are interested in offering codes.
