Here some suggested organisations that offer expert advice on SN.

Is there an iPad app where you touch a picture of a bird and hear its song?

I am sorry to ask here as this is for my dad but this app is more likely to be aimed at children with SN if it does exist.

Thanks in advance for any leads.

That's a lovely idea.

I can't help with an app - we have this book which is lovely (DS's special interest is birds).

However it's very possible that a book might be too much for your dad (my stepdad has dementia and I know reading / turning pages is much for him now).

You can easily press the up down arrow keys to hear different birdsong, but it might be hard for him to find the picture of the corresponding bird.

I'll ask DS if he's aware of any apps (although I would imagine I would know if he was aware).

Maybe some else will come along that does know.

Chirp looks like it might be what you're looking for. Looks quite customisable.

Oooohhh!

(That was me saying 'that looks interesting' incase it wasn't clear!)

OP hope that looks good for you too
