about the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

We started this program 10 years ago because we were trying to help our own child. When we asked psychologists for a good "emotional regulation" program they said none existed. We researched and found that there were none that we thought taught emotional regulation well to young children. So we started to build one ourselves.

How does your innovation work in practice?

Emotional ABCs uses a propriety curriculum to teach basic emotional skills. Our program teaches children how to figure out what they’re feeling, why they’re experiencing that emotion, and how to make better choices for lifetime emotional resilience. There are inexpensive Parent options and a Free Teacher program that is free to educators worldwide. You sign up at

How has it been spreading?

We have had teachers sign up in more than 90 countries over the last 6 months and at more than 65,000 schools across the USA in the last 2-3 years. The program is now used by parents everywhere and in 4 out of 5 elementary schools across the USA. We did some Facebook advertising and had some good word of mouth.

If I want to try it, what should I do?

Teachers and school counselors who are employed full-time by brick and mortar public or private schools can sign up for a free teacher account at This is free worldwide. Parents can sign up for an inexpensive account at the website too.
