    Hi Allanah

    Some apps I have found particularly valuable with supporting learners with their writing are:

    iWordQ (UK version) - excellent with many processing disorders, dyspraxia, dyslexia, APS is costly but well worth it many parents have also bought it for their children when they have trialled it

    Dragon dictation - turns speech into text

    Book Creator - use this as a book for students who are reluctant writers especially great because they can add pictures/photos

    Popplet - great for mind mapping, organising ideas, note taking, keywords and can also add photos to, timelines, many many uses

    QRCodes/Scan (for both reading and writing they find this particularly creative and quickly overcome their reluctance)

    Reading - Learning Media have many books as apps now aimed at L13 and above I think can't be 100% sure)

    ShowMe (reading and writing)




    Math Bingo 

    Hungry Fish - Motion Math have many great apps

    MathTapper Apps such as Clockmaster, multiplies, fractions
