Often, students with Autism and other social skills deficits struggle to understand the direct and indirect impact that their behavior has on other people. When we engage in behaviors that make people have negative thoughts about us, that in turn also affects the way other people interact and treat us (eg, if I make someone mad by pushing them if they touch my things, that person will then have negative thoughts about me and will more than likely not want to be my friend……Or if I’m playing basketball and do not pass the ball to anyone because I think I’m the best player, other kids will probably not want me to be on their team next time). A lot of students can identify punishment consequences associated with negative behaviors (eg loss of privileges, time out, sent to the principal’s office etc), however identifying the SOCIAL CONSEQUENCES is a much more difficult and abstract concept for our students to grasp.

This packet is designed to teach students with social skill deficits to identify how different actions may affect other people’s feelings/emotions (both positive and negative emotions) and then possible SOCIAL CONSEQUENCES that may be experienced as a result of making others feel that way. The packet is broken down into 3 key components:
Part 1- Use of worksheets and activities to teach the concept about how actions affect others, as well as identify the correct/incorrect way to handle a situation.
Part 2- An interactive activity that involves 408 different scenario cards. Students read the cards and select how the action described in the scenarios would make other feel. This can be completed as a game with multiple students or as a 1:1 interactive teaching method. Students are encouraged to think about why the scenario would make others feel a certain emotion, social consequences experienced as a result of those feelings, and then different solutions if the action resulted in negative emotions/consequences.
Part 3- Data tracking and behavior change goals- Once students are able to identify actions they engage in that may make others have negative thoughts, goals can be set and tracked (using student self monitoring data) to encourage more appropriate actions.

Specifically in this packet you will find:
