Preschool Social Group Kit: Initiating and Maintaining Conversation During Play

The development of conversational skills begins through play in preschool.  Preschoolers are learning how to initiate and maintain interactions through play with their peers.  However, children with social communication impairments don’t always learn these skills simply from watching others.   A child who doesn’t know how to initiate interactions with peers may become aggressive or knock down his friend’s block tower instead of asking to play.  A child who doesn’t know how to maintain an interaction with a peer may end up playing alone and become isolated.  These children can benefit from being explicitly taught how to use words to interact with their peers and from having a lot of practice under the supervision of a speech-language pathologist.  

We know that working on social skills in groups can be very beneficial for these children.  The interactions with their peers and the ability to practice in natural interactions can be so helpful to our children who struggle with social communication.  But it’s not always easy to find time to plan out these group sessions and create the materials needed to run them.  That’s where we come in!  

Our preschool social group kit will include everything you need to smoothly run a preschool social communication group that focuses on initiating and maintaining interactions during play.  You bring the children and a few toys and we’ll bring everything else!
