What's New in Version 1.5.6
Minor bug fixes.
Great for school psychologists and educators
As a practicing school psychologist I use this with all of my elementary school students. During our sessions we focus on de-escalation techniques, mindful practices, cognitive distortions and realities, solution-oriented approaches, and conflict resolution. This app teaches ALL of that in a child-friendly and engaging format. I have recommended this app to many of my colleagues and recommend it to any educator or parent wishing to enhance the aforementioned skills.
Bravo for teaching emotional skills
Wow! I'm a developmental specialist and this is perfect for children and parents I work with. I got it for my iPhone 6s and have tried it a few times and works perfectly so far. I'm excited that there is finally attention being given to emotional development and not just abc and 123
Would be great if it worked consistently...
Only worked once on an older generation iPad. After that only the audio worked. The visual was stuck on the home screen. On a newer iPad it would work but would often freeze, causing my toddler to be in the same frustrated state the main character is in!
