The Kimochis® Feeling Lessons can provide students, who experience significant challenges in social-emotional development, an opportunity to learn the essential skills needed to navigate a complex and sometimes difficult social world.
At all ages (preschool through Grade school), these are the students who stand out as not “fitting in” with their peers (Klass and Costello 2003). They don’t seem to understand their own feelings and are often confused about the emotions of others. Their difficulties with interpersonal skills, emotional regulation, flexibility, perspective-taking and communication competence can lead to problems forming and maintaining relationships with peers, teachers, and parents.
Not all students who struggle with social-emotional development will have a special education diagnosis.
Howver, other students may have a diagnosis such as:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Asperger’s Syndrome (AS)
- Pervasive Developmental Disorder–Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS)
- Nonverbal Learning Disability
- Learning Disability
- Pragmatic Language Disorder
- Specific Language Disorder
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
