Mindreading DVD: Teaching emotion-recognition to people with autism spectrum conditions

With generous charitable funding we have produced DVD-ROMs for children and adults with autism spectrum conditions to use as teaching tools to help them learn about emotions. The DVD-ROMs have a comprehensive set of emotional expressions in the face and the voice, as produced by actors, and use computer-game formats to help the user learn this information that they usually find difficult. The DVD-ROMs have been produced by Red Green & Blue Company (Multimedia Production) in London, and are marketed on a not-for-profit basis by Jessica Kingsley Ltd. The usefulness of the DVD-ROM is currently being evaluated in a treatment trial among adults and children with Asperger Syndrome, compared to controls.
