Emotions and Feelings Monster Puzzles For Working On Expressive Language



One of the main things autistic children work on is in speech therapy is expressive language. Communication is vastly improved once they learn how to express their feelings and emotions appropriately.

Learning what emotions go with what feelings also helps in social/relational skills. Logan had to learn that anger is not the appropriate response to everything if he wanted his friends to keep playing with him.

Let’s be honest, even neurotypical children could use some lessons in emotions. Little people have big emotions that they need to learn how to control.

Enter these fun emotions and feelings monster puzzles! As you put the puzzles together, you talk about when you feel the emotion and how to respond appropriately in a fun way.

Repetition, repetition, repetition is how our autistic kids  learn while thinking in pictures.

What is an example of expressive language?

Speaking, gesturing, writing, facial expressions, and vocalizations are all variations of expressive language. Autistic children can have words but not be conversational because they have expressive language disorder. 

An additional way we work on this alongside the puzzles are talking out loud about how you feel ALL THE TIME. Logan learns how to respond to different situations by seeing how I do it. I will often remark when we’re watching a movie or tv show about the emotions and feelings that are being displayed.
