Learning Differences & Special Needs Guide (Common Sense Media)


No matter which hurdles your kid faces, the apps and other media included in this guide can give him or her an added boost. We don't expect an app to be a complete solution, of course. Working with kids who face challenges requires lots of time, attention, and patience on the part of a parent, teacher, or other adult caregiver. Our goal is to offer you a host of fun, well-designed apps that were recommended and tested by field experts. We hope they can become a part of your toolkit as you work with your child.
