If you are looking for a way to help kids understand and recognize body language and emotions, look no further. Touch and Learn Emotions is an app that will appeal to children with its relatable photos. Each screen shows four photos. The user is asked to choose the one that shows the given emotion (the emotion is narrated, therefore knowing how to read is not a requirement). With every correct answer, a positive acknowledgment is given.

I find this app particularly useful for those who have special needs. It helps teach the recognition of different emotional states, which is a skill set that may otherwise be harder to obtain for some. It is a great tool to help develop the ability to spot and become familiar with facial expressions and body language. The app is fully customizable, with the ability to record your own voice and edit which concepts are taught.

Available for download through iTunes. (Only tested on an iPhone.)
