In this short video, parents talk about emotional development in their children and teenagers with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). They say their children often struggle to understand or talk about emotions. They’re the same as their peers physically, but emotionally and socially they lag. Parents talk about using picture boards to help children recognise emotions. They also describe therapies that have unlocked emotions in their children.
