My DPS

The Language Express, Inc
The Digital Problem Solver (DPS) originally appeared in The Social Express™ as a tool for the characters to use to identify emotions and coping strategies. Users quickly requested a real DPS to use outside of the software.

My DPS is a customizable application that enables children to select a feeling and a coping strategy to calm themselves. My DPS features eight feelings including:

•Bored
•Surprised
•Mad
•Annoyed
•Happy
•Scared
•Sad
•Frustrated

There are four coping strategies which include:

•Use Positive Self-Talk
•Take Five Deep Breaths
•Take a Break to Calm Down
•Remind Myself to Keep Negative Thoughts In My Head

When a child selects a coping strategy, he/she will then see a Hollywood quality animated video which models how to do the strategy.

Customize your DPS by adding your own feelings and coping strategies. This can be done by taking a picture or by importing from the camera roll. The pictures can be personalized by adding text to label the feeling or the strategy. Pictures can be deleted easily.
