April is Autism Awareness Month and there is always a frenzy of activity – including (typically) many apps gone free. With a few days yet to go, the apps gone free seems to have started. Here is one app, free for a limited time (yes, how long is typically a mystery) reviewed by the folks at Smart Apps for Kids :
S.E.E – Social Emotional Exchange (iPad; currently free/ 29.99 typically). Described on iTunes as an “engaging and interactive way to teach children various human emotions by looking at facial expressions.
This app has been built from ground up while keeping kids with autism in mind.
S.E.E. has been developed with the direct consultation and feedback of ABA therapists.” Developed for 6-8 year olds who need direct instruction on concepts of emotions. Here are a few clips of the app:
