About Faces: A Workbook to Help Children Express, Recognize, and Deal with Feelings. Recognizing the feelings of others is a vital skill for all social interaction. Although words, tone of voice, and gestures are also important, the most reliable way to learn the feelings of others is through observing facial expressions. Many children, including those on the autism spectrum, have trouble reading feelings from observing facial expressions. The About Faces Workbook contains 52 images of faces followed by a quotation representing the feeling expressed and open-ended questions to help children link expressions and feelings. The workbook helps children recognize, express, and explore their feelings and the feelings of others. Recommended for ages 4 and up.
About Faces Card Game. The About Faces Game includes 52 cards with faces representing thirteen different feelings. By practicing matching the feelings and the faces, children learn to read facial expressions, which is a critical social interaction skill. There are several ways to play the game to help children recognize, express, and explore their feelings and the feelings of others. Recommended for ages 4 and up.
