1. Khan Academy Kids (And Khan Academy)
(FREE; iOS, Android)
This award-winning app contains thousands of educational activities, books, songs and games. It is suitable for pre-schoolers up until around the end of Key Stage 1. Children can play at their own pace and repeat their favourite activities as many times as they like. The app features friendly animal characters who can be gifted special items to go into their personal collections. The library section is full of short books, videos, phonics and counting activities. This is a great educational app where the material is presented in short chunks, ideal for younger children or those with a limited concentration span. There are no distracting adverts either which is a bonus!
Khan Academy is the more mature version suitable for older children (age 12+), students and even adults. It’s also free and features thousands of interactive exercises, videos and articles. It’s a great tool for improving general knowledge in short, sharp bursts, which is perfect for an ADHD brain.
