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.
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
