I promised yesterday to share the emotions apps I’ve been using this week in therapy. My preschoolers have loved using the iPad and then making the same emotions in the mirror themselves. Here are some favorites:
Moody Monster Manor (free): My favorite part is the monster maker. Make a sad, angry, and happy monster!
Discovering Emotions with Zeely ($19.99). This app is very good for your students with ASD. The app uses real pictures. It goes through each feeling and describes the facial expressions. It explains how the high brows pull back or the mouth pulls down. My students love the spaceship theme. Although it’s pricey it’s a high quality app!
Touch and Learn Emotions from Alligator Apps (free) The real pictures on this one are great, but he prompts are pretty high level. Best for elementary aged students!
ABA Flashcards and Games – Emotions (free) Another great set of cards that contain a word label with a real photo. These are perfect for introducing emotions or for use with your more severely delayed students.
Baby Emotions (.99) This app is so engaging to a lot of my kids they just love ‘babies’. We got lots of two word utterances such as ‘baby cry’, ‘baby happy’.
Breathe, Think, Do with Sesame Street. (free) A super cute app from Sesame Street that helps children understand how to stay calm and think of ways to deal with challenges.
Autism Emotions from Model Me Kids (free) This app demonstrates how to act out an emotions using format similar to a social story.
iTouch iLearn Feelings Free. (free) Try out this free version of the feelings app! My favorite is building a face out of fruit and veggies!
I hope this list is helpful and leaves you with emotions of ‘relaxed’ and ‘happy’.
