NAERUM, DENMARK — The Ida Institute has announced that its ‘My World‘ pediatric counseling tool, which is designed to help children talk about their hearing loss, is now available as a free app for use on tablets. The tool is said to enable children to express themselves and helps you uncover information about the child’s communication patterns.
The My World app allows children to recreate their day and talk about how they communicate in different environments – at home, on the playground, or in the classroom – by populating the spaces with friends, family, and the things they enjoy.
Using My World in the appointment helps children to openly express their feelings and try out new communication and coping strategies in the safe environment of make believe.
My World is developed in collaboration with audiologists and rooted in evidence-based methodologies of play therapy and narrative counseling.
