Does anyone know of any good apps for disabled kids?

Hello, I'm Graham and I work here at Scope.
I'm doing a bit of digging to find out about some great apps that might suit and appeal to disabled children - either for use on a  tablet or a smartphone. And for the more technical amongst you, are there any really good app development companies who specialise in this area? Any suggestions, recommendations or ideas welcome!
Many thanks

    What do you mean by "disabled kids"?  What sort of disability?  Do you mean those with physical access problems, or ASD or LD or all 3?  What age?  Most disabled children will just want the same apps as their mates!  Not "special" ones.  The issues are probably more about access to the mainstream apps, esp. for kids with physical disabilities.

    Thanks for your comments and sorry for the delay. Are there any mainstream apps that are more inclusive than others? And I'm talking about any disabled children - so any recommendations welcome.

    Hi I don`t know of any apps but there are two charities I know of who specialise in adapting gaming controllers specific to individual requirements/needs  they are Oneswitch and SpecialEffects. Hope this is of some help?
