Settle Your Glitter

Unfortunately, this app is temporarily (?) unavailable.

This app by the Momentous Institute aims to ease deep breathing exercises for children, for a number of specific emotions. These are visualised as whirling down glitters in a virtual snow globe.

– The duration of the exercise cannot be chosen in advance and takes on average 1 minute. At that point, you have to chose whether or not you would like to continue.
– After completing the exercise, the remaining intensity of the feeling is evaluated. The automatic response following this evaluation is however independent of the exercise’s result.

+ Children can shake the smart phone to start the exercise: a fun interactive aspect.
+ The puffer fish which visualises breathing looks nice and offers support when conducting the breathing exercises.
+ The amount of glitters varies according to the initial intensity of the emotions children report before starting the exercise.

“Settle Your Glitter provides a fun visualisation of two complex topics: emotion intensity and deep breathing.”

The Allen Adventure

The goal of this app is to stimulate prosocial behaviour and self-regulation. The target demographic are children of age three to eight. The development was realised by the Australian education authorities.
– Only available on tablet, not on smartphone.

+ The therapist can optionally disable the reading voice and read the text aloud him or herself, while still maintaining animation sounds.
+ Easy to use, with well chosen, fun animations.
+ Four different, interactive scenarios each highlight different aspects of prosocial behavior.

“All aspects of this app are just right: the activities are fun en playful, the graphic design is spot-on and the content is certainly relevant for therapy.”
