The iPad can be an effective tool to help many kids with learning differences or special needs.

Here are some of the top special needs apps that help build skills — from identifying emotions to communicating to practicing social and perceptual skills to recognizing word reversals and more.

Touch and Learn – Emotions

From Innovative Mobile Apps, best for ages 3-up, Free, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch

This is a great free app to use with kids who need practice deciphering emotions.

Kids play by looking at four photos and then touching the photo of a person showing a specific emotion. You can customize the app by selecting which emotions are shown, adding your own photos and determining whether the requested emotion is spoken as well as displayed in writing.
