Facial Expressions and emotions

Hosted by "Tracy" at "Mother May I," but the photo-picture below will whizz you right there with one click.

Just call me snap happy.

A whole book full of faces.

True they're pumpkin facial expression but he drew 30 plus a cover, all different.

This is my favourite one, dizzy.

This is a very particular triumph around here. Facial expressions and body language in general, are notoriously difficult for some autistic children to interpret. This is often associated with “face blindness,” but I’ll try not to get off track. Quite often, depending upon their vocabulary and age, they’re quite adept at naming different emotions. However, on the whole there are far too many of them. Happy, sad or angry was quite enough. Whilst this works as a broad rule of thumb, it can be jolly handy to have a few additional ones at your disposal.
