Our Story

Here at EmotiPlay, we believe that every child with autism should have access to the best therapeutic and educational methods the world has to offer. We brought together the world’s leading autism professionals and educational technology experts to build a platform that gives therapists and parents everywhere access to research-proven tools for teaching emotion recognition. We’re committed to continue working with the autism community to help children overcome obstacles and thrive.  

The EmotiPlay platform content has been validated by the large-scale, EU-funded study “ASC-Inclusion”, and endorsed by leading autism organizations including Autism Europe, Autism Society of America,  and NDIS Australia.
