Product Description

Synopsis

Effective social interaction does not come naturally to many children with learning disabilities and yet is vital for developing and maintaining relationships and for independent living outside the school context. This social skills programme for pupils with mild to moderate learning disabilities, physical and/or medical disabilities and for those with special needs in mainstream education is divided into three units: let's communicate; let's be friends and let's practice. It aims to increase self-esteem and improve listening skills and expressive language abilities. Teacher's notes, photocopiable illustrated pupil worksheets and assessment and evaluation forms are included.

I thought this book was an excellent social skills programme. the format was easy to follow with numerous ideas to build on. I used this book in a small group situation and the children enjoyed their sessions immensley, the feedback from the childrens parents was very positive as they quickly saw a difference in their children's self esteem levels.

This game was recommended to me by the teacher at school as she plays it with children in her class, to promote social skills.

I have 2 boys aged 9 and 10 who have some difficulties with social communication, therefore I felt this might be a fun way to improve there skills. It certainly is! Socially Speaking is great fun, the children were fully engaged - the 'I ate peas for tea' said in happy, angry, surprised voices had them really trying to imitate the emotion, but laughing about it and each other too. Their big sister who is 11 also played and enjoyed this game with her brothers, which is lovely as she often finds them frustrating! I really felt it brought the whole family together and is a game for all to enjoy at all levels - both 'neurotypicals ' and those with additional needs.

I've been using this since the start of term with my class of 12-14 year olds with moderate to severe learning difficulties. Its got some great ideas and each session builds on the previous one. The class enjoy it and they can now all tell me exactly what I mean by good listening and recognise when they are or are not doing so!

I bougth this thinking I could use it at home, but really does need to be group work. So I have handed it to the school to work with ds, he dreads the book. I do think the content is very good though if applied in the correct setting and way.
