This collection of social situations and problems will help you move your students through understanding of social cues, social language, and social interaction skills.

For students who have difficulty knowing what to say in social situations, this is a great collection of visuals that present more than 50 opportunities to identify feelings, practice what to say, determine what/how someone might be thinking or what they might say.

Included are opportunities to:

  • read body language, facial expression, and/or context.
  • think about how the person might be feeling and/or thinking,
  • think about what they might say

There are realistic and cartoon-like clip art, photographs, and blank character outlines.

Visuals provide practice opportunities as they are, or can be used as a starting point for more discussion.

Students with pragmatic language disorders - particularly students with Autism Spectrum Disorders - need direct access to social situations to practice understanding the contexts, so that they can respond appropriately.

You can use the pictures as a jumping-off point for creating simple stories that you can use to help students regulate behaviors and increase perspective-taking.
