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 in this Social Inferencing Boom Card™ Deck will help your students practice making smart guesses about what the people are thinking or feeling in the photos.

This Social Inferencing Boom Card Deck™ is a digital resource just like my printable Social Inferences Interactive Flipbook with 40 Real Photos.

Using this Social Inferencing Boom Card Deck requires the internet. You would access the deck on the Boom Learning website. You have the ability to assign this Boom Card deck in Google Classroom, or send a Fast Play link to parents to have students practice at home. You will be able to digitally store student responses using the Boom Card deck.

If you are wanting a resource like this that you can print out or use on Google Slides, check out the printable version by clicking the link above.

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.

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.
