This tool is excellent for children who have difficulty understanding and processing different facial expressions. Laminate front-and-back boards for the “Feelings chart” – pages 1 – 6. Once you feel your child has a grasp on the listed faces and meanings for each emotion item, you can utilize the flash cards from pages 7-12. Cut each row and fold on the dividing line. Insert your cut out into a lamination sheet, laminate, and cut out your front-and- back emotion flash cards.
Remember utilizing these tools and spending consistent one-on-one time with your child is the greatest recipe for independence!
Best of luck!
