Descripción del producto
An adult or teenager with Asperger's syndrome who struggles to decipher facial expressions and their emotional link would find it valuable. I work in school using a joint working/consultative model and have to plan my use of the software carefully. I would have no hesitation in recommending this to teaching colleagues. The manual is simple and refreshed my approach to programme planning. -- Bulletin (Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists) I am delighted that my acting might actually help people with autism learn to recognize how other people feel. It is wonderful that drama and special education can be combined in this exciting new software. -- Daniel Radcliffe

My daughter's passion is computers, so I thought she would take to this program. We fooled around with it for about half an hour. Then she announced that she already knew all the material (she did) and that the program was boring (it was). An hour later, she said, "Mommy, can you do something to get that horrible program out of my head?"
This program is what my computer programmer ex-husband calls "shovelware". It is intensely dull. This subject matter could have been made so interesting! I mean, come on... Emotions are everywhere! Instead, we are subjected to five-second clips of really bad actors (plus the Harry Potter kid) acting out, for example, anger. No context. And with all the overacting, it isn't true to life.
This program would only be useful for a child who truly has no understanding of emotions whatsoever. Even then, I think you would have a hard time getting him or her to work through the program, based on the sheer mind-numbing boredom.
My daughter gets emotion. What she doesn't always get (here comes theory of mind) is why YOU don't "get" something, when SHE does. The program didn't help with that at all.
Oh, and did I mention that it was BORING?
Did I see instant results? Not at all. But this is not a magic pill. After working at it solidly for a few months it became obvious that he was able to read more and more expressions. Our child was also face blind - he was totally incapable of recognizing people. At a crowded play date he would be confused as to which mother was his! He wasn't able to recognize his teachers or his friends of many years. I don't know how the program helped him to figure this out but, rather quickly, he was able to learn how to memorize faces so that four years down the road people don't believe that he couldn't recognize his own mother's face from that of other dark haired moms!
I don't know if this program will work for everyone but I could kiss the people who made this and the therapist who insisted we try it at least for a few weeks before giving up. It has changed my son's life completely and has made the outer world a little less scary for him.
As a social skills facilitator for students with high-functioning autism and Asperger's Syndrome I highly recommend!
