Social Skills and Life Skills
Respecting personal space is an important social skill needed in order for students to effectively interact and communicate with others. Most people instinctively sense or are aware of someone else’s personal space, but many special needs students tend to require help learning these boundaries. This lesson focuses on defining personal space, why it is important, and identifying different zones, and possible warning signs that someone’s personal space has been invaded.
