Abstract

The present paper outlines the impact of group training on the emotion recognition of six individuals with a moderate learning disability. The accuracy of identifying emotions depicted by line drawings and photographs with and without an emotional context was examined before and after group training. The results indicated that there was a significant overall increase in accuracy in identifying emotions following group training. In addition, a significant increase was found in the ability to correctly label emotions depicted by line drawings typically used in symbol-based communication systems. The implications of the results are discussed.
