($50 worth of apps have gone FREE on our FREE APP FRIDAY post too!)
What a great way to get ready for Autism Awareness Month in April! It is well known that people with autism spectrum disorders often struggle with recognizing and controlling emotions. Well, there's an app to help with that!
Normally $19.99, Discovering Emotions with Zeely has gone FREE for a limited time only, so please share this post amongst your friends in your social network — you never know who might need this.
Bottom Line: This app is designed specifically for kids ages 2 to 8 with Language Disorder or Delay, Apraxia of Speech, Autism Spectrum Disorder and learners of English as a second language. It is a great app, especially for receptive language skills, but the price is a little high without the expected level of customization and data collection for a therapy app.
