Sensory App House creates apps for stimulation, relaxation, fun, digital art and speech therapy. Our apps can be used by therapists and educators to help younger people with visual and speech development and sensory issues.
Our apps have been mostly for free, and we are delighted to have had well over 3 million downloads.
We have a strong understanding of disabilities and difficulties, and make apps to help assist, even in the smallest of ways. Many of the cause and effect apps are also switch accessible.
We develop for many platforms - iPads, Chromebooks, Android, Web Apps, Windows, Mac and Apple TV. Please contact us about licensing and partnerships.
Sensory App House was founded by Professor Paul Blenkhorn and Dave Stevens, who also both co-founded reading and writing assistive software specialist Claro Software.
