About the Author:
Katie Flanagan has worked as a teacher for over a decade and currently works as the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator. She has always had a keen interest in helping children to develop emotional literacy skills. When she was teaching, she used to help the children expand their vocabulary around the emotions they experience by getting them to answer how they felt during register time.
She used the opportunity to help teach them new words for different feelings. During this time and in her parenting, she found herself trying to define emotions in a child-friendly way to help describe the emotion and when they might be feeling it. This inspired her to create pictures book with a wide range of emotions to help increase children’s understanding of the emotions and the words they could use. She also decided to create a journal so children had a place where they could explore their own experience of their emotions.
She published the first book, What am I feeling? Defining Emotions in 2017 and has had lots of positive feedback from Educational Psychologists and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service. She won the American Bookfest International Book Award for children’s ‘mind body and spirit’ category 2018. She has had positive reviews from the SEN resources blog, top parenting blogger ‘What the Redhead Said’ and Melissa Hood, Co-Founder of the Parent Practice.
Katie has qualifications in Psychology, PGCE, National SENCo Award, Time out for Parents, and Group facilitator for charity Care for The Family.
