Teen level topics with language support! Do you have problems finding appropriate materials for solving problems with your older special needs students? If the level is right, the problems may be too young. If the problem is right, there isn't enough support for the language skills or the language levels are too high. This product may be just what you were looking for! Best of all, it is NO PREP and B/W to print & go!

Students make their own inferences about what the problem could be after discussion of idioms, nonverbal language, facial expressions, and emotions. Providing their own details about the problem helps them make a personal connection to the story!

What are happy buyers saying?

* "This is perfect for my higher-level pragmatics kids at the high school level. So many pragmatics activities are too easy, but this is perfect for those kids I see who are very smart but have more subtle social deficits. I also love how it combines nonverbal cues, inferences, problem solving and idioms - great for targeting multiple goals at once."

* "Love how so many skills are integrated into each situation."

* "This is such a great resource for older kids with problem solving goals! It also incorporates idioms, figurative language and understanding body language. A+"

* "This product is great for pragmatics students as well as for students who need to work on problem solving, making inferences, and making predictions."

* "This is such a great product. Puts lots of language and social communication instructions for older students at your fingertips."
