Calm Counter is a visual and audio tool to help people calm down when they are angry or anxious. The app includes a social story about anger, and audio/visual tools for calming down.


The app opens up to a “I need a break screen” that vocalizes “I need a break” when it is tapped. The screen then transitions to a red screen with an angry face and the number ten. With each tap the screen transitions to a calmer face and color. In this way, the app prompts the user to count backwards from ten followed by a deep breath.

The app also includes a simple social story with line drawings about anger. The social story talks about feeling angry and things you can do, like counting to ten, breathing deeply and taking a break, to calm yourself down.

The settings screen allows you to choose from male, female or no vocals for counting back from ten and for reading the social story out loud.

    I think this would be a great app and useful to my son but there is no sound. For a paid app I expected the sound to work!

    It's a great idea but I can't get the sound to work on mine. That would make it such a better app for my son.

    I bought this app last year for my son who has difficulty in social situations. It was great and he had stopped his biting. But ever since the last update it has failed to open and my son's behaviour is back at square one again. I'm a desperate mother ask
