How It All Began!
I began creating the mood toolbox over 3 years ago after my son Ben was diagnosed with ASD. My goal by the end of last year (2017) was to complete this Mood Toolbox app, to help children with regulating their emotions. It took a lot longer than expected as another Special Education teaching job came my way without even applying for it. So I worked 4 days a week and spent one day a week developing my app. By the end of the year, I was getting exhausted so I stopped for a while.
After, a few days off school, I asked a calm and sad Ben to help me to finally finish this app. He assisted with doing the voice overs for the stories included. Some are quite authentic as he was very angry having to repeat them over and over!
He did an awesome job and then started trying the app and suggesting different games that I have now included.
Today Ben went to his yearly check up at the hospital and the doctor was amazed with his progress.
