EmotiTeam: It's all about emotions! Improve your child's social skills
Does your child have difficulty dealing with social situations? Do you feel that he or she is not like other children in interpreting the emotions and actions of the people around them and in responding to them?
Scientific research has shown that children with autism may be impaired in the ability to decipher emotional clues from the facial expressions, tones of voice and body language of others, as well as in expressing their own emotions. As a result, their communication with the people around them may be inefficient and frustrating, possibly leading to undesirable emotions and outcomes.
EmotiTeam is an effective way to change this situation and to help your child learn about emotions in a systematic yet enjoyable way.
The results of clinical trials show: It actually works!
The lessons’ content and the video stimuli were evaluated by an international team of leading researchers. Clinical trials were carried out among more than 100 children in 4 different countries in order to evaluate the program’s effectiveness.

The benefits of a computerized environment for a child with autism
- Children with autism love to play with computers,just like any other children, and most of them prefer this activity over any other.
- As a rule-based, predictable system, the computerized environment is especially suitable for children with autism.
- A computer is always ready for action!It is never too busy to offer you and your child meaningful activities, never too tired to repeat the same activity over and over again, and never too distracted to track the child's achievements and progress.
- A computerized learning program provides an individualized experience, allowing each child to progress at his own pace and to develop his individual strengths and abilities.
