Calm Counter Social Story & Anger Management Tool
By Touch Autism
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Calm Counter is a visual and audio tool to help people calm down when they are angry or anxious. The app includes a social story about anger, and audio/visual tools for calming down.
The app opens up to a “I need a break screen” that vocalizes “I need a break” when it is tapped. The screen then transitions to a red screen with an angry face and the number ten. With each tap the screen transitions to a calmer face and color. In this way, the app prompts the user to count backwards from ten followed by a deep breath.
The app also includes a simple social story with line drawings about anger. The social story talks about feeling angry and things you can do, like counting to ten, breathing deeply and taking a break, to calm yourself down.
The settings screen allows you to choose from male, female or no vocals for counting back from ten and for reading the social story out loud.
What's New in Version 3.2
Updated for iOS 8
The story is ace, my son loves it! He did point out tho that the last page of the story say "from 10" but the text says "to 10". (He tells me every time he uses it!)
Unfortunately he has to already be calm down for the counter to be any use otherwise he chucks the iPad. But he knows when he's ready and asks for it now tho.
