Hi there, I'm hoping someone on here cam give me a bit of advice or point me in the right direction. Basically the teacher I am working with ( I'm a TA in Year 2) spoke to me this afternoon and said that we will be welcoming 2 new children (twin boys) to the class next week. One child has some behaviour problems, which I'm fine with. However what she did say that this little boy has problem distinguishing his emotions. He doesn't understand that he is angry, scared or crying etc. Basically all she has said is if he is crying we have to say something along the lines of I know you're crying because there are tears in your eyes......... And that's it. That's all I was told. I asked if there was a name for this so I could look into the condition a bit more and she said, No there's no name, that's just what I was told. Has anyone heard of a condition like this before?? To me it sounds somewhere n the Autistic Spectrum, but I could be very wrong there and way off the mark. What I'm asking is, does anyone now where I could find anymore information about this, or even have a name or something for it. I don't want this poor child to start crying or something and me not being able to calm him down and help him.
