Developing Social Skills

Social competence is an essential aspect of our quality of life and this resource will help you to develop these skills in young children.

The book includes:

  • Over 60 activities to develop social skills in body language, conversations and assertiveness
  • A 2 year teaching plan to help teachers incorporate groups into the school curriculum
  • A short introduction to working with children with social skills difficulties
  • An assessment of social skills and planning sheet for intervention
  • 25 excellent group cohesion activities to use within in your groups
  • Forms and evaluation sheets to help with the smooth running of groups

This resource has already been piloted across the UK and abroad and has proved to be very popular with teachers, therapists and children. Puppets and animals bring some of the concepts to life and new Talkabout characters help the children to learn these essential skills.  This is certainly a must have for anyone working with young children or children with special needs on social skills.
