Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
For many children with autism, communication challenges, and more – identifying and acting emotions out appropriately can be a challenge. Sensational Learners Inc. offers the My Feelings board game, which makes exploring, recognizing, and acting out emotions fun!
The My Feelings board game features seven basic feelings that players will first identify, then explore by drawing cards. According to the developer’s website, “As they play, children will ‘discover how to recognize feelings in themselves and in others, and to cope with them in socially appropriate ways.”
Features of the My Feelings game:
- 280 scenarios to help children explore and talk about feelings
- Objective of the game is to be the first player to reach the end of the game’s path by recognizing, exploring, and acting out emotions appropriately
- Game comes with colorful booklet titled All About Feelings that introduces children to seven different characters with seven different feelings (Example: Happy Hannah, Frustrated Freddie, and more)
- For children ages 4 and up
- 2-4 players
