Review of Researches on Autistic Children's Emotion Recognition Ability

  • Lin Zou


The most prominent feature of autistic children is the deficiency of social cognition, of which emotion recognition is the weakest link in social cognition. On the basis of combing the literature on emotional recognition of autistic children at home and abroad, it is found that the research on emotional recognition of autistic children mainly focuses on facial expressions, verbal information and other emotional clues of autistic children. At the same time, it is also found that there are some problems in this field, such as relatively insufficient developmental research, weak consistency of research results and difficulty in implementing empirical research. Therefore, it is the trend of future research to further improve the research on the development of emotion recognition and to construct standardized intervention programs based on emotion recognition.
