What is the theory behind this identifying emotion worksheet?

Children with autism spectrum disorders (ASC) struggle greatly to identify and react to the emotional and mental states expressed in others’ facial expressions. Their issues with social interaction and communication, which are at the heart of the diagnosis, are caused by these empathy problems. As a result, kids with ASC exhibit less “face expertise”

How will the worksheet help?

This worksheet will help children with autism spectrum disorders in identifying complex emotions through facial expressions. Children can later apply these expressions in real life to identify what others are feeling.  The therapist or caregiver can also show the child how to show these expressions with the help of a mirror.

How to use the worksheet?

This worksheet contains some images of children expressing different emotions through facial expressions. With the help of the therapist or a caregiver, children with autism spectrum disorder will try to identify the emotions and circle the correct answer.
