This activity book is a helpful and creative tool for children aged 4-8 to learn and understand their emotions to help reduce anxiety. It is intended to be used in conjunction with the 10 Steps to Reducing Your Child's Anxiety on the Autism Spectrum: The CBT-Based 'Fun with Feelings' Parent Manual.

Come and have fun with us, your feelings! Get to know us so that we can help you express your feelings any time you need to!

Say hello to Happy Henry Honeydew and see how his eyes light up, his mouth has a great big smile and how he's always laughing.

Sit beside Sad Sally Strawberry and you'll learn that when she is sad her eyes look down, her face has a frown, and sometimes she cries.

You can show that you are strong, brave and clever by meeting and getting to know all of your feelings. By getting to know your feelings, and learning about the Tools in your Toolbox, you will be able to express and talk about your feelings whenever you need to.

Reviews:

Young children with ASD often find it difficult to understand and control their emotions/feelings and they seldom use emotional expressions. Here's a CBT activity book compiled by five clinical psychologists with considerable experience of working with people who have autism to help in these respects. It's intended to be used in conjunction with another JKP publication, 10 Steps to Reducing your Child's Anxiety on the Autism Spectrum: The CBT-Based 'Fun with Feelings' Parent Manual, but is a helpful publication for analysing and exploring commonly experienced feelings and emotions, in its own right... I was particularly drawn to Ryan and his relaxation tools, most of which I've used with early years and KS1 classes in general, rather than with a specific child who has autism... This activity book could really help parents who have a young child on the autism spectrum; but equally in a nursery or KS1 setting, it could be used by a key worker/classroom assistant who has specific responsibility for a child with autism.
