Many iPad apps are available to support learners with reading and writing difficulties. This ‘Wheel of Apps’ is not comprehensive, but attempts to identify relevant apps and to categorise them according to some of the difficulties faced by people with dyslexia.
Note that some apps address a range of difficulties. In order to save space, we have decided not to place individual apps into multiple categories, but have placed them according to a single category that is particularly relevant to the app.
There will be a far more comprehensive guide to apps for dyslexia and how to use them in a forthcoming book from CALL Scotland. This will be available as a printed book and as a free download early in the New Year from:
This ‘Wheel of apps’ for dyslexia is inspired by previous visual app representations:

• Mobile Learning with Bloom’s Taxanomy & the Padagogy Wheel – Cherie Pickering & Amanda Pickering
• Apps for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders – Mark Coppin.
These representations are available from various web sites, but can all be downloaded from:
