Feelings are an important part of relationships, yet individuals with social learning challenges (including those with diagnoses such as autism spectrum levels 1 and 2, social communication disorder, ADHD, etc.) often struggle to understand their own feelings and those of others. YouCue Feelings uses engaging online videos to make learning about feelings and relationships easy and fun.
Included in the book:
- Summaries of 25 YouTube videos recommended for social learning, freely available and ready to use.
- 25 YouCue Activities, Level 1: targeting social understanding of the videos.
- 25 YouCue Activities, Level 2: targeting making connections to self.
- Appendices including feeling lists, recommended books, and more.
In this first book of a series, author Anna Vagin, PhD, draws on her thirty years of experience working with children to show therapists, teachers, and parents how to support elementary and middle school students in building their emotional vocabulary, tracking changes in feelings over time, and increasing their ability to reflect on their own emotional experiences. YouCue Feelings offers video recommendations and activities to guide students in thinking about, talking about, and ultimately, practicing important social learning ideas in their everyday lives.

YouCue Feelings complements Anna’s book Movie Time Social Learning, and provides resources and tips for helping individuals decipher their own and others’ emotions. Since the lessons are explored through media clips posted on YouTube, the information is especially relevant and absorbing!
