My Book Full of Feelings
How to Control and React to the SIZE of Your Emotions: An Interactive Workbook for Parents, Professionals and Children
This highly engaging workbook is an ideal way to help teach children with autism spectrum disorder to identify, assess the intensity of, and respond appropriately to their emotions. Children learn to identify situations that are "big deals", "medium deals" and "small deals" and the emotions that match these situations. The book is fully interactive. By using a dry-erase marker, unique situations and solutions can be added and changed with the wipe of a paper towel, as the child masters a skill and grows. Also included is a Communication Pad for tracking and sharing information between home and school -- an important component of effective programming. The educational book is a great tool for all children, including those with autism spectrum disorder.
