Understanding emotions - their own and others' - poses a major challenge for children with autism spectrum and other social cognitive challenges, causing frustration, misunderstandings, and often behavioral outbursts.

Let's Talk Emotions: Helping Children with Social Cognitive Deficits, Including AS, HFA, and NVLD, Learn to Understand and Express Empathy and Emotions, a collection of easy-to-use activities for children ages 4-18, gives parents, teachers, and others a valuable resource. Through a wide variety of experiences, children learn to identify and respond to their own feelings as well as the feelings of others, thereby improving their chances of maintaining and establishing fulfilling and successful social relationships.

The appendix offers many activities and worksheets for emotions discussed in the book.

Editorial Reviews

LET'S TALK EMOTIONS is an unusually clear explanation of the difficulties people with social cognitive differences face in perceiving and processing emotions, followed by a plethora of easy-to-implement interventions for teaching the 'intellectual empathy' necessary for successful social interaction. Vital for anyone wishing to learn more about educating those with Asperger Syndrome and other conditions the nonverbal and other subtleties of the emotional aspects of social interaction. --Stephen Shore, author of BEYOND THE WALL, editor of ASK AND TELL, board president of the Asperger's Association of New England

Intervention therapies that focus on building academic progress and communication abilities fail children with autism who also desperately need to understand the complex world of human emotions. This book is excellent at providing a clear, easy-to-use road map for parents and a 'must have' book for every professional. --Emily Chappell, executive director, Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center

I've been waiting for a book like LET'S TALK EMOTIONS that provides concrete strategies for children with social cognitive deficits to learn how to decipher emotions. The intervention ideas are innovative and practical for home and school use and can be adapted to all ages. I use it, and I highly recommend it. --Karen Samet, speech language pathologist
