What are you feeling? A guide to help deaf children understand and identify their emotions
Deaf children with delayed language development may lack the vocabulary to ‘label’ their feelings. This can delay the growth of personal and social skills, and have a knock-on effect on academic achievement.
This book is a flexible resource –providing everything from a basic colouring book and matching game for the youngest of children, through to a basis for role-playing and deeper discussion for older children. The book also includes QR codes linking to videos of British Sign Language vocabulary for feelings and emotions (playlist opens in YouTube).
The topics can be revisited according to the needs of children and the demands of the National Curriculum
