My World is a free pediatric counseling tool from the Ida Institute designed to help children talk about their hearing loss. It enables children to express themselves and helps you uncover information about the child’s communication patterns.
The Ida Institute is now pleased to offer My World as a free app for use on tablets. The easy-to-use 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. My World is available for download in the Apple App or Google Play stores.
