Expressing Feelings - Teaching Resource for Children with Autism, Ages 9-11The “Expressing Feelings – Teaching Resource for Children with Autism, Ages 9-11” is a detailed educational guide designed to assist teachers in supporting students with autism in understanding and expressing their emotions. This comprehensive resource includes background information on autism, alignment with the Australian curriculum, and key considerations for teaching about feelings and emotions.

It features a variety of teaching activities aimed at improving interoception (awareness of internal body signals) and helping students identify and manage their emotions through explicit teaching, understanding cultural influences, and encouraging help-seeking behaviours.

Activities range from Dan Siegel’s hand model of the brain to interoception exercises focusing on muscles, breathing, temperature, and pulse, as well as creating hunger-fullness scales and strategies for turning uncomfortable emotions into more comfortable ones. This resource is invaluable for educators seeking to enhance their students’ emotional literacy and self-regulation skills in a structured and supportive way.
