How can we improve SuperBetter?

Children/Junior version to boost esteem of kids!

I am a pediatric occupational therapist. I work with children of varying abilities, including children who have autism, Asperger's Disorder, sensory processing difficulties, fine motor delays, Down syndrome, and a host of other medical conditions and issues to help them live their lives to the fullest. One thing many of my patients have in common is significant levels of anxiety and poor self-concept. I think it would be great if there was a Superbetter that was designed for children in the 5-8 range and maybe an 8-12 range. Children thrive on what we may consider "minor" accomplishments, such as climbing up a slide for the first time or trying a new food that was previously terrifying. I think the "little wins" that Superbetter provides are perfectly suited to children's emotional and intellectual needs! As soon as I watched Jane's TED Talk, I immediately wanted to use a similar concept with my patients!

    I don't see why a child couldn't necessarily use the current system. Everything is explained in simple terms with the help of both text and video, and it's got enough colour to keep a child engaged.
