By working with the 6 basic emotions ( joy, fear, anger, sadness, surprise, disgust ), Emoface Play & Learn Emotions helps in recognizing and understanding emotions, in particular by detailing facial features and by putting emotions in context.

The use of the app is perfectly suited to sessions with healthcare professionals, due to the difficulties that users face in recognizing emotions, as well as in understanding them, contextual or not. But the app can also be used with the family or independently.

What does ASD mean?

adela March 30, 2021

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) include a complex set of changes in children’s cognitive and emotional development. These can be represented, in particular, by difficulties in learning, communication and social interaction.

ASD is a generic term to specifically characterize autism or Asperger’s syndrome.

About 700,000 people in France are affected by ASD, including 100,000 children and young adults under the age of 20

What are the characteristics of ASD?

adela March 30, 2021

Signs can appear from childhood (starting at about 18 months).

There are often learning and communication problems (verbal and non-verbal):

In young children

The child does not respond to their first name, does not point the finger, does not imitate people, avoids looking into the eyes of others, makes few social gestures (such as “hello”, does not say his age and “goodbye”).

Children and adults

Difficulties in establishing a dialogue, engaging in conversation, creating friendships, decoding emotions and language subtleties such as irony, sarcasm, ambiguities.

Other behaviors are also observed from childhood to adulthood:

  • a narrow and repetitive palette of interests and activities
  • atypical sensory reactions

Contrary to popular beliefs, the presence of ASD does not necessarily imply intellectual disabilities. According to INSERM, this affects about one in three people.
