A Jar Full of Feelings: Sensory Regulation Activity
[Source: Mosswood Connections]
Explaining feelings and emotions to young children can be complicated; especially so for children on the Autism Spectrum. I had been making progress with one of my young students by drawing comic strips and meters but one day he told me, “This is not working. I have too many feelings!” The next level after recognizing and regulating one’s emotions is to realize that there are many times that we have mixed emotions and we have choices about how we respond to those emotions.
