It is frustrating for children and their families when a child cannot recognise or safely express their emotions.

In this presentation, Dr Emma Goodall explains why many children with disabilities struggle to identify and manage their emotions. It will also give you practical strategies to support them to do so. These strategies require 5-20 minutes a day and are suitable for all people regardless of their age, challenges and their support needs.

However, while children are still learning about their emotions, they need the adults around them to help them manage their feelings. This presentation provides you with three strategies that will be useful when helping children to manage and recognise their emotions.

The Family Conference brings together families of children with disabilities and their allies. The presentations aim to inspire, educate and empower families in building a good life. The conference also celebrates people with a disability who are making a difference in their community

The Conference was a collaboration between Plumtree, Now & Next, Kindred and Reframing Autism.
