Calm Counter is a visual and audio tool to
help people calm down when they are angry or anxious. The app includes a social story about anger, and audio/visual
tools for calming down.
The app opens up to a “I need a break screen” that vocalizes “I need a break” when it is tapped. The screen then transitions to a red screen with an angry face and the number ten. With each tap the screen transitions to a calmer face and color. In this way, the app prompts the user to count backwards from ten followed by a deep breath.
The app also includes a simple social story with line drawings about anger. The social story talks about feeling angry and things you can do, like counting to ten, breathing deeply and taking a break, to calm yourself down.
The settings screen allows you to choose from male, female or no vocals for counting back from ten and for reading the social story out loud.
