Having no words to describe how you feel can be one of the most frustrating feelings in the world. For individuals living FASD, not being able to describe an emotion or explain a feeling can often resulting in misunderstanding, frustration, anger, and behavioural problems. Emotion signifiers can simply be images of people expressing certain emotions, they can be images of the individual themselves, or stock photos. The tool is used by asking the individual to indicate which image best reflects how they are feeling at a given time. Choosing the right emotion to describe your feelings can result in empathy, understanding, patience and kindness which in turn can correct problems that result from misunderstandings and improve social skills.
