SAMPLE SCRIPT is also included in each lesson so you don't even have to prepare what to say -see preview (use if desired). It also includes INTRODUCTORY HANDOUTS FOR PARENTS AND TEACHERS, SAMPLE SPEECH AND LANGUAGE GOALS that go along with the program, in addition to HANDOUTS FOR PARENTS AFTER EACH SESSION explaining what was targeted in that session. This program is visually set up to easily pick out the different activities, which allows you to either follow along the lesson, or make the lesson your own.
The skills targeted in this program are the following:
• Proper greetings and farewells
• Eye contact
• Conversational skills
• Turn taking
• Topic maintenance
• Listening skills
• Body language
• Facial expressions
• Following directions
• Identifying feelings in self
• Recognizing feelings in others
• Critical thinking skills
• Problem solving
• Appropriate reactions to daily problems
Each lesson runs approximately 45-60 minutes long
*Lesson number 4 stresses empathy - defines it, provides guided discussion of it, and has activities that encourage kids to experience empathy. Empathy, in my opinion, is one of the most important thing a child (or anyone really) can learn. It will help socialization dramatically.
***The 6th lesson can be optional because it requires the purchase of a Lego set or additional time to prepare your own building activity***
