Daily Feeling Chart, Alternate Version

Happy   New Year!http://30daynephalist.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/stuart_smalley.jpg?w=88&h=88
I would like my first post of this year to be another feeling.. or emotion tracking  chart.  Your excited… so am I (photo, right).
I am glad  that the   Daily Emotion Chart  for Special Needs Children has been relatively well received, since I first posted it , years ago.  But I think  emotions charting or tracking can be useful for more than just children.  For adolescent  boys and girls and adults, managing mental disorder or just having trouble expressing their selves confidently, a emotion chart tool can be just as useful.  working on Emotional grammar It can never hurt anyone, of any a age.

The emotion tracking  chart  (the one tagged for children that I have posted previously)  could be used by anyone at any age, or expanded upon… but I had to give it name (for the search engines of the interwebs);  and it was based on a previous Daily-feeling-track,jpgexperience with a friend and her childs needs .   So I am   adding  another example of a chart for emotional vocabulary.

My theory is (and I certainly don’t think I’m alone in this thought) that one can learn to make most of his or her own personal management tools;  by customizing them for his/her own needs; or the needs of themselves with  peers, support,  communicating to their doctors etc.
The creativity and control  that comes with   personalizing and maintaining  one’s   own toolbox only serves to build confidence and command over health management, IMHO.
However this one I made is free to download in several formats.  Use them as is…. or  just make your own charts,

Simple Daily Emotions Chart for Children (revised)

This is a  quick revision   of    post:  “Daily Emotion Chart for special needs kids.” the chart is deliberately  simple following the K.I.S.S  method.  Although it was inspired to help  a  child with special needs,   anyone could use it modify it or make their own.  The next post will feature a new simple feeling chart or tracker that is better suited for adolescents or adults.
Now, I have to go shovel Snow,  have a great day!
-Chris.

I have a friend with a special needs child. She told me  that, she was upset. She  unable to communicate what she saw in her child’s behaviour at home to her sons teachers at school. Her son’s teachers were having a very difficult time managing him at school. Because the child was diagnosed with a mood disorder (as well as some serious behaviour problems and patterns)
I suggested having him fill out  a mood chart to aid in comparing his behaviour with affect over time. Somewhere I found an hourly mood chart on the WEB, downloaded it, and made some copied her.
I found out a couple months later, That the teachers at the school were actually sitting down and filling out the chart with her son. My friend was filling it out the chart at home as well and sharing with case workers and her child’s psychiatrist.
~
It was the  simplest tool that helped aid  a child to communicate what he was feeling to his teachers, his mother and his professionals. A simple aid to help people get on the same page.
Sadly I cannot find the mood chart I downloaded back then, so i thought I’d take the time to create a simple new one.

Not only does a feeling chart give the support people to  a special needs child a better understanding of what the child is thinking…

It gives a child a chance to do something many are just afraid to do…Voice what they are feeling. Express themselves confidently.

emotions-chart-picture  There many kinds of charts, colorful ones…
but since i make no money for making charts, well my chart is simple.
