Recognising and understanding facial expressions and the emotions they convey can be challenging for some children with learning disabilities and developmental disorders such as autism. Teaching how to read facial expressions and interpret emotions correctly helping them to express their own feelings is important to improve a child's social and emotional development.
Trodat's Emotion Stamps can be used in the classroom and at home where teachers and parents can work with the children to teach them about emotions. They are also ideal to help children express how they feel. The stamps display ten facial expressions and can be used to help children learn to recognise them and children can use them to express their own emotions if they have difficulties to do so verbally.
The ten facial expressions the stamps display include: happiness, sadness, fear, surprise, admiration, disgust, self-confidence, confusion, anger and guilt.
