It is important for children to learn how to both express how they are feeling and communicate what they need. Children who have difficulty with language often struggle when it comes to emotional expression. When they can’t find the words to tell how they are feeling, they may use a physical action to show their feelings instead. Children should learn how to understand their feelings and express their needs. This will make them less likely to engage in challenging behavior.
These visual supports were designed to assist you with teaching emotional expression and problem solving.
