Activity Lesson Guide
Listen to the social situations to figure out what kind of impression the person is making on others. You can have them tell you the reasons or clues that make them think that. They can also brainstorm what the person could do to change the impression.

Page 52: Visual expected vs. unexpected cards. These cards are designed for the therapist to take data during the therapy session on a student’s behavior. This also serves as a visual reminder to be expected in the group. Every time the student is being expected, you can put a check, plus, line, etc. in one of the expected behavior slots. Every time the student is being unexpected, you can put a check, plus, line, etc. in one of the unexpected behavior slots. This way you don’t have to stop therapy to correct the student and you are still giving them feedback about their behavior.
