Description

Emotionary by Me.Mu is an emotion diary tool designed for therapists (primarily speech-language therapists) or teachers who work with children and adolescents with autism, autism spectrum disorders, or similar mental disabilities.

Understanding emotions is necessary in the development of social skills and empathy. While typical therapy often emphasizes recognition of emotions through flashcards, Emotionary by Me.Mu emphasizes the contexts in which they may appear.

A deeper understanding of emotions is achieved by having learners practice extracting relevant contextual information from their own lives, thus complementing other existing solutions and apps which focus on external or hypothetical scenarios.

Me.Mu is a project that aims to develop innovative solutions to facilitate socio-emotional development in individuals with autism and similar mental disorders. The project grew out of Stanford's Learning, Design, and Technology program.

Has Potential to be a powerful classroom tool

MotherHen47

I just started using this app with a second grader who is on the spectrum and he took to it right away. I took pictures of all the places in the school where lessons occur and created a folder for him to use with his journal. When my student gets angry or upset I send him off to tell it all to the iPad and it helps him calm right down.

One major drawback is students could very easily delete their own and other student folders because the password does not protect that in the student menu. I also wish there was a way to send adult notes through email or to dropbox.

Good with autistic kids

Emotion journal

I've been using this app to help one of my autistic student. He seems to really like it. It is simple enough for him to choose his options of emotion. However, it would be nice to have more options to choose from. I like the fact that students can record and listen their own voice, use/take pictures of how they are feeling, and also write in the journal.
