Emotional regulation is important for all as we navigate day to day. At times we can be triggered, igniting behaviours that are extreme and socially challenging. For those who have worked hard to learn about recognizing their emotions, this app is much needed to continue that journey, with tools readily at your fingertips or of those supporting you.
We are doing a study inspired by the makers of Reset Zone. We look to determine the effectiveness of mobile de-escalation tools to support youth and adults with autism to regulate emotion. The app will support the user to reset challenging emotions in real time. We will analyze the app and it’s effectiveness to change challenging states and to support people to return to their day in a timely manner. The goal is to access simple solutions to avoid the stresses and problems that can cause one to feeling overwhelmed by emotions.
Our friends built an app called "Reset Zone". Although it is not currently available for download, this app inspired the idea for our app for self regulation tools. If you want to see where we got our inspiration from, here is Reset Zone's promotional video.
