Inability to recognise other people’s feelings can lead to conflict and impact on the child’s social integration. This is likely to be seen in a child’s behaviour in the classroom and playground. The Recognising emotions bundle of products will help children who have difficulties identifying emotions and feelings of others.
Pupils may be participating in SEAL and/or PHSE programmes within school but some children may be demonstrating particular problems with the language aspects of social communication. This can effect their learning and social inclusion. These children may also, but not necessarily, have a diagnosis of ASD or Asperger’s Syndrome.
The Recognising Emotions bundle includes the six packs listed below:
