FREE APP ALERT ~ EXPRESSIONS for AUTISM & SPECIAL NEEDS

Does your child have difficulty understanding emotions? Does your child have difficulty understanding facial expressions. I found this app to be very helpful with my son. My son finds it difficult at times to understand emotion. In fact he often will give the exact opposite of an emotion/facial expression. I found this app to be very helpful with Marley. I just wish they had more expressions and facial expression for children to explore. Normally a $3.99 app, this would be a great opportunity to check this app out!!
