Sensory Apps

Fireworks Arcade Free – Great cause and effect app used with learners on the P-scales. Touching the screen causes the fireworks to go off and make the noise as well.


Pocket Pond – Free – Relaxing cause and effect app. Stroke fingers across the screen to get the effect of touching water. Fish swim away from your touches plus have the ability to add dragonfly’s and lily-pads.


Fludity – Free – Another cause and effect app with stunning visuals and colours to engage learners. Have used mainly with PMLD and SLD learners.


Balloonimals£1.99 – Really nice visuals with this app, blow the balloon up and swipe you fingers across to create the animals. Once the animal is made it will animate when ever you press it. Great sound effects too.

Peeping Musicians£2.29 – Used to develop early observation and target touch skills. Students have to wait for the musician to ‘peep’ onto the side of the screen and are rewarded by an animation and music. Great for students to develop their understanding of anticipation and cause and effect.

Somantics – Free – a suite of applications that allows you to interact with touch and camera. Great for SLD and ASC students to promote greater self awareness and confidence.

  1. ooo, love the look of that balloon animal one, haven’t seen that before. Have to say that the koi karp one is very popular with many of our learners 🙂
