Helping Those Hearing Hassles!
Helping children with mild and moderate hearing impairments understand what they hear.
Interpreting Facial Emotions
Many children (especially those with autism-like conditions) have difficulty interpreting facial expressions and understanding why people feel certain emotions. Moody Bear Puzzle, Emotion Cards, Smart Alex software all offers an opportunity to recognize expressions and hopefully talk about why the person might be happy or frightened. Try using them with a mirror and perhaps Polaroids of familiar people showing the same emotions. Eventually see if your child can make (and understand) the expressions, then take their pictures!
