EmoSchool is a project under development

EmoSchool : Promoting inclusion and well-being at school

“Developing social-emotional skills has a profound impact on health. Autism presents a well-identified and urgent need. Indeed, autistic people have difficulty expressing, recognizing and managing emotions, which causes, among other things, serious problems in terms of educational and professional inclusion and access to care.” a fact recognized by the OMS since 1994.

What is EmoSchool ?

During extracurricular time, among other things, many children play, have fun with friends, shout, speak loudly, express themselves, all the most ordinary things that can be found within ‘school. However, during these moments of great joy for some, others are in distress, there is too much noise for them, too much sensory stimulation which can make them anxious, stressed, sometimes aggressive. Indeed, autistic people very often need calm, rest (after having been stimulated all day with their teacher), they would like to be able to breathe like the others and yet they cannot.

The EmoSchool project, funded by the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, aims to train school staff, particularly during extracurricular times, in order to better meet the needs of autistic children. This tool currently under development also aims to teach children with cognitive disabilities* to better manage difficult social situations in the school environment.

*Cognitive disability is the consequence of dysfunctions of cognitive functions: disorders of attention, memory, adaptation to change, language, perceptual identifications (gnosias) and gestures (praxies), autism.
