A digital, google slides (google drive and google classroom) and printable social skills packet for distance learning and social emotional learning.

This is a product designed to help students with autism and social skills deficits successfully differentiate between different levels of problems, as well as appropriately react in order to effectively problem. All too often I work with students whose reactions do not always match the size of the problem. Many times my students have over-reacted to a problem that is not a ‘big deal’ or that could have easily been solved by engaging in simple low level actions.

*****Activities within this packet are available as printables and digital/paperless in the form of digital PDFS and google slides. Interactive PowerPoints for sorting activities are also included for offline digital sorting activities****

This product can also be found within my social skills BUNDLE packet.
