Web Resources for Disabled students By Amy Milne

There are so many web based tools to use with students with disabilities. Students with sensory issues can choose between 100s of apps to help cope in stressful situations. It has been proven music and pictures can calm even the most erratic child. The following are some iPad apps to help with this (these cannot be linked because they are only on iOS or Android devices):

Tiltoria is a mesmerising animated light show, music visualizer and psychedelic paint box all rolled into one. There is nothing quite like it!
Glow Draw is an Apple App but can be found on Android too. The bright neon on the black background is as soothing as it is creative.

The above buttons will take you to pages at eLearning Industry and they are full of different apps to help students with special needs. There are apps geared for autism, learning disorders, behavior, sensory issues, speech, vision, and more. Click on them to see more helpful apps and descriptions of who and how the app will help.

Use this web-based word processor to support writing tasks, like, planning and organization, transcription legibility and editing and revising. Planning is supported with an outlining tool from which the draft can be created. Editing and revising are supported with a spell check tool and text-to-speech review of drafts. Being web-based, this program can be accessed from any computer having Internet access.


The Nessy Program was created by specialist teachers for students ages 5-12 with reading differences like dyslexia.
