Can Brain Training Apps Help with ADHD and Autism? “Solitaire Emotions” game designed to Boost Mental Health for Kids, Adults, and Seniors

New York, NY – May 24, 2024 – The question of whether playing video games can have a healthy and positive impact on a wide range of demographics, including kids, adults, seniors, and neurodivergent learners (autism spectrum disorders), is gaining increasing attention. 

Positive Peers Learning Software Partners, an education technology company are  the creators of the innovative brain game app “Solitaire Emotions,” firmly believe in the affirmative and point to recent studies from the Pew Research Center, the National Institute of Health and the Responsible Innovation for Technology for Children (RITEC) Project. 

These studies suggest that video games with positive thinking narratives and problem-solving challenges can significantly benefit cognitive and emotional development.

Solitaire Emotions, developed by Positive Peers Learning Software Partners, combines the classic card game with unique visuals, and (English and Spanish) bilingual self-regulation cards, coping strategies, positive affirmations, positive self-talk, to help players of all ages, including neurodivergent individuals.   

This works in five key areas: learning to identify and manage various emotions, reducing stress, and sharpening memory. 

This game is designed with the belief that positive words and affirmations are crucial for mental health enrichment.

“Words have power,” says Jomo Gamal Thomas, bilingual author, artist, attorney, and co-founder of Positive Peers Learning Software.

 “Positive thinking and self-talk can reduce stress, improve productivity, enhance coping skills, and promote better mental health. Our game features positive affirmations and words to help manage emotions and relax through the classic card game Solitaire, also known as Klondike or Concentration,” Thomas said.

The app’s innovative visual interface and coping strategies provide a much-needed tool for developing self-awareness, empathy, and behavioral regulation. 

“I have a passion for positivity, productivity, people, and social-emotional learning,” says Thomas. “As a single parent of a young son, Jomo Jesus, who is a prodigy and a neurodivergent learner (autistic), I saw the need to create a mindful Solitaire app for EQ and IQ that promotes positive thinking and emotional management.” An estimated 6 million (9.8%) US children aged 3–17 years have ever been diagnosed with ADHD and over 8 million adults have ADHD according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Co-founder Sandra M. Clifton adds, “This is not just another mindless game. It’s about incorporating emotional intelligence and positive thinking into a gamified experience for brain training and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and zones of emotional regulation.”

The app includes:

* Dynamic Learning Environment: Each session in “Solitaire Emotions” allows players to engage with complex emotions and develop strategies to navigate them effectively.

* Cognitive Development Tools: The game enhances cognitive abilities like memory, attention span, and focus through interactive card gameplay.

* Skill Enhancement: Players can sharpen their decision-making skills and problem-solving abilities while enjoying the game.

Emotional Coping Mechanisms: The app helps players identify their emotions and develop practical coping strategies.

* Promotion of Mental Health Awareness: “Solitaire Emotions” encourages players to have open conversations about mental health, fostering a supportive community.

Thomas further emphasizes the importance of positive thinking and emotional intelligence in today’s society: “Negative words can decrease self-esteem, self-confidence, and emotional control. Young children benefit more from positive self-talk and affirmations that promote mental health, self-confidence, and improved self-control of emotions. Developing a game with positive messages is our way of giving back to the world.”
