I have some friends that need practice with initiating conversation or knowing what to say next. These around town situations will give you a chance to role play and practice with them in the therapy room.
Each of the 44 cards has a typical around town situation. Read the card to prompt social language. There is also space below each question if you prefer to use this as a writing activity with older students.
There is no ONE
right answer! Conversations are as individual as the participants. You might make a comment and I might have asked a question. However, because you might be working with graduate students or have an assistant or volunteer helping with therapy, I’ve provided an answer key with some expected answers. This is not meant to be an exhaustive list!
