Students with social pragmatic deficits need to be explicitly taught how to look for nonverbal clues to interpret someone's emotion, thoughts or plan of action. Using real photos will help your students practice making smart guesses about what the people are thinking or feeling in the photos.
Teaching social inferencing to your students will help them learn the following skills:
⭐Interpret non-verbal cues better
⭐Learn what a person's plan or what they might say/do in a social situation
⭐Build skills to help them shift the perspective of another person
⭐Be able to understand people's motives and feelings
When we teach our students with social pragmatic deficits about social inferencing it can help them be more aware of themselves and other people. Plus, it also works on answering those tricky higher order thinking questions, which is great for ❤️reading comprehension❤️.
The making social inferences flipbook includes 40 real photos and prompts to discuss what the people could be feeling and how the student came to their inference.
If you are doing teletherapy or assigning activities during distance learning, this resource also has a link to a Google Slide file with these photos. You can easily assign the Google Slide in Google Classroom. You can watch this tutorial on my YouTube channel to see how you can assign this resource to Google Classroom.
Directions for Assembly:
Print the real photo pages, laminate and cut out. Hole punch and attach with binder rings. Use the interactive social inferences flipbook with a dry erase marker.
How to Use This Resource:
Start by teaching your students to look
for “clues” in the picture. Have them share what they “see” in the photo.
Then, have your students make smart guesses about what the person could be feeling or thinking. Model answers for your students using the first person.
When looking at the photos, you can also work on having your students identifying where the person could be, when the situation could be happening or what might the person do next.
