Most high function autistic children understand the basic emotions, but complicated ones such as embarrasment can be confusing.
Therefore, I made my son a feeling face book and read it to him often to help teach him about different emotions. I took the emotion faces from Toni Attwood’s Book, “Asperger’s Syndrome” and made my son this feeling face book. I drew in the faces for each emotion. There are definitions and example sentences for each emotion.
