Welcome to "Friends and Feelings"
Friends and Feelings" is a compilation of four Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood episodes and helpful introductions for parents and professionals.
Fred Rogers was concerned with the social and emotional development of all children. But it just so happens that Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood is a wonderful resource for children with autism in particular. The social and emotional themes that Fred talked and sang about every day are the very skills that pose such big challenges for children with autism. Plus, children with autism connect in powerful ways with the program’s calming pace, caring tone, and predictability.

"The episodes are each gems and the DVD as a whole is both practically helpful
and emotionally moving, a veritable treasure-house of tips and inspiration for
children with autism and their families, teachers, and therapists."
