Westmead Feelings Program 1 is an evidence-based clinical intervention package developed by The Children's Hospital at Westmead, designed specifically to teach emotional and social skills to children with autism spectrum disorder and mild intellectual disability.
The Westmead Feelings Program 1: Resource Kit includes:
The Overview provides facilitators with the information and knowledge required to develop an understanding of the program in order to implement it for children, parents and teachers. It details the purpose, history and research basis of WFP, and outlines the specific teaching strategies used to address the learning profiles of children with autism spectrum disorder and mild intellectual disability. The Overview also explains what each element of the program is and how it is used in sessions with children, parents and teachers.
This manual is a session-by-session guide to the WFP 1 child program. It explains the objectives for each session and outlines which resources are required, along with any additional supplies that may be necessary. The manual is fully scripted and gives detailed descriptions of activities, games and workbook tasks, as well as instructions on how to use the video files and other visual prompts, in the order in which they appear.
This book is a teaching tool for WFP 1 child sessions, and provides a completed example for each individual page included in the child workbooks across the three modules and the booster session. Worksheets have been completed using drawings and minimal text, and are designed to provide an example to assist children who may struggle to complete the worksheets on their own. For children who may have trouble writing or drawing, there are additional examples of the worksheets completed with the video screenshots provided on the facilitator's USB.
