Social skills community activities for middle school and high school! Use this NO PRINT resource designed to work on a variety of pragmatics in speech therapy social skills groups or one-on-one sessions. Great for speech teletherapy!
There are 80 social situations included, plus options to include custom-made ones depending on your student’s needs.
Use this thorough product designed to work on a variety of social skills within the community. These no print, interactive activities will give your students control of the situations and questions presented.
Use these activities individually or in groups. The more complex cards are great for discussions.
The activities in this product are organized in order from easiest to hardest. Keep in mind, many of these questions don’t have one right answer. Some of these scenarios are difficult, even for adults, but are real situations that will arise in life which are important to think about and discuss. If you find them too difficult for the teenager you are working with, try asking a different question that is more direct (e.g. Instead of asking “What should you do?” Ask: “Since she appears to be feeling upset. What can you ask her?”)
Includes fill-in-the-blank and multiple-choice questions features.
