Why emojis can help kids’ health

I love emojis. It’s probably not for the reasons you think. Yes, they’re fun and eye-catching. But they’re also an incredibly useful tool in health research and teaching.

For young children, emojis can aid inclusion in aspects of society previously closed to them, such as active participation in increasing knowledge of childhood well- being, and being heard in care and educational settings.

Emojis can also support children’s learning in areas of health, well-being, safety and diversity.
