This a short but to the point about expected group behaviors for kids with social cognitive deficits. Some of my kids love small group and others do not. I use this before every group to remind them of my two most important rules - keep your body in the group and keep your brain in the group, that is thinking and talking about what the rest of us are talking about it (or in other words, you have to participate). I have to use a alternative choice - doing a worksheet - in lieu of participating in group as I often will have one student who just plain refuses. Usually when presented with the worksheet (be sure to have it printed out and ready to go just in case), my student quickly changes his mind.
