Emotional Development & Regulation

Books and toys can help children on the autism spectrum develop strategies to recognize emotions and how to control them as well as recognize social cues and how to behave in a socially acceptable manner. Toys that allow children to develop skills in this area will help them build connections with others, learn to make positive self-management choices and express emotions appropriately. Look for books or games that demonstrate a range of emotional states, toys that encourage imitation and trying on different emotions, and activities that can lead to conversations about the why and how of different emotions or emotional reactions.
