Autism and Asperger Syndrome, Feeling & Emotions

Description

Young children with autism have particular difficulty in understanding and controlling their emotions, especially where 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 early school years. The book outlines a 9-session program using methods, games and activities that are developmentally appropriate. Treatment components include affective education, cognitive restructuring, social and group stories, and the emotional toolbox. A parental component is also included to support practice at home and promote generalization outside of the classroom or therapy setting. This is a dynamic and effective resource for professionals working with young children with autism spectrum disorders including teachers, psychologists, speech therapists, behavioral therapists, occupational therapists and social workers.
