Thank you for stopping by our store today to read about one of our social skills packets. We have personally used this packet a lot during food themed therapy weeks and during our Thanksgiving themed sessions. This week at the clinic we are making pizzas! This therapy packet is working in perfectly with our pizza making themed speech and language sessions.

This packet contains a board game, game cards, and several other interactive activities that are all designed for a fun social skills session targeting the advancement of table manner skills and knowledge. Please see the contents below for details.

We welcome your feedback and reviews. We value your opinion because we strive to make our packets meaningful and just what you need!

Thank you for stopping by our store and have a terrific social skills session with your students. We hope its a productive one!
