Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look
at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to
help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or
other special needs!
Emotions are an essential part of our lives. Individuals
with traumatic brain injury or TBI frequently experience damage to
regions of the brain and neural networks involved with processing
emotions. My Emotional Compass was specifically designed
to address this issue by helping individuals interpret and put
words to their own feelings.
My Emotional Compass is an app that helps you better
understand your emotions. According to the app's description,
"Awareness and labeling of our emotions puts us in a better
position to control them and communicate them to others.
Research suggests that labeling emotions can help minimize an
unpleasant emotional response."
