When my son was having touble communicating emotions I had him make drawings of different feelings- mad, sad, frustrated, lonely, etc. and then put magnets on the back and hung them on the fridge. Whenever he was feelings something he could go get the picture and show it to me. It worked wonders....he was about your sons age when we did it. Good luck sweetie! XO
You could make him PECS cards showing emotions that he could carry and show people as he needs to.
My son in the past was not talking. So we got him a speech device that came with pictures of faces that happy,sad ect. But we never used that cause he shows his feeling. We got it so he can tell us if he wanted to eat or a toy ect. He is talking now. So we dont use it anymore.Could you get him a device ?
