Face Games offers a range of resources for teaching various special needs learners, and this is possibly one of the most useful. It's a free download (available for Mac, PC or Linux) with various activities for learners to identify facial expressions.

From the site:

A collection of games concerned with faces, emotions and face reading which is a follow-up to the now rather aged Rubberface Game. All activities are randomised to ensure repeatability.

Games at various levels of difficulty are:
  • Memory Pairs
  • Aging Face Timeline Game
  • Name the Mood Games
  • Odd Face Out Game

The faces are realistic computer generations which are intended to accurately represent a small cross-section of expressions, ethnicities and the aging process. 

The activities are primarily intended for children and young people with autistic spectrum disorders who have difficulty face reading.
