Many children with autism have difficulty interpreting facial expressions,  body language, and relating socially to other people. Therefore, it can be common for children to struggle to recognise and understand other people’s emotions.

In addition, it can be very difficult for children to recognise their own emotions, and/or to express their emotions to another person in an appropriate way.

The emotions workshop discusses why children might have these difficulties, and offers ideas of activities and strategies to use with children and young people to help them develop their emotional awareness and wellbeing.
