An unexpected benefit
While not designed exclusively for the ASD community, the emotionary app is proving to be an excellent resource.
According to Professor Attwood, world leading authority on Asperger's syndrome, the emotionary app has "value for those with an Autism Spectrum Disorder from Asperger's syndrome to even severe autism."
This endorsement has been backed up by user experience.
"I am autistic and emotions are difficult for me to articulate in the moment. This app helps me change "I'm angry" to "actually, I'm more frustrated and worried."
"I like how the cards are color-coded, too."
"It's easy to say "I am having too many green emotions" or "today is an orange day."
"It's a lot easier for me to have a conversation about solutions to what is bothering me when I am able to break the emotional storm into its individual parts and understand how they are working together."
"These cards in this app make my life easier."
