What's the Psychology behind the app?
Adding entries might focus attention on happy things, improving mood. Users could also go to their ‘Tap Me Happy’ app when feeling unhappy to try and make themselves feel better. Tap Me Happy may help with emotion regulation, language stimulation and understanding of cause and effect. Lots of applications for this simple, easy to use app!

Kids and adults not yet able to read and write, or with special needs can get help to make entries to ‘Tap Me Happy’ by a parent, carer, teacher or therapist (leaving out text entries). They can then independently press the ‘Tap Me Happy’ button to view what makes them happy.

Currently being trialled by teachers, carers & therapists!
Parents and teacher please note!!! No ads, no in-app purchases. What you put in the app stays in the app.

‘Tap Me Happy’ was developed by Belinda Ratcliffe, MPsych(Clin), BSc(Hons), MAPS, an Australian Clinical Psychologist with a special interest in Autism, Intellectual Disability & Mental Health.
