We believe in a brighter future

We started Superplus with a single mission: to improve the lives of children with special needs. Our experience as both parents and teachers for special needs children inspired us to challenge the status quo. Our children were stuck using old tools like printed flash cards for verbal communication or applications too complicated or boring to use regularly.

We care about families

We know that each child is unique. We know that as parents and teachers you understand your child better than anyone. With our apps we want to enable you and your child to live a richer and fuller life – together.

We combine knowledge and play

At Superplus we use strategies from the gaming world to communicate everything we have learned from our clinical research and practical teaching within the special needs ecosystem. Creating engaging and motivating user experiences around the science is our biggest priority. Knowledge and play is in our DNA. We’re building a new way for children with special needs to gain confidence and self worth – and to master the world around them.

PARTNERS

At Superplus, we love our customers. We celebrate in their success and learn from their challenges. Superplus wants to provide solutions and give flight to what our customer can only imagine. That is why Superplus actively and continuously seek out other like minded people and organizations to partner with, within the special needs community. Together with our partners, we can inspire progress that will in turn improve lives.
