Exploring Feelings for Young Children with High-Functioning Autism or Asperger’s Disorder
January 10, 2013
By Autism Society
Young children with autism have particular difficulty in understand and controlling their emotions, especially when those emotions are negative. This practical manual for professionals provides a set of simple strategies to help children with high-functioning autism or Asperger’s syndrome who suffer from mood difficulties to decrease negative feelings and increase positive feelings in daily life. Using a cognitive behavioral therapy approach, the Stress and Anger Management Program (STAMP) is designed specifically for young children in their pre-school and early school years. The book outlines a dynamic and effective nine-session group program using methods, games and activities that are developmentally appropriate. Treatment components include affective education, cognitive restructuring and the emotional toolbox. Learn more on Amazon.*
