Our tone of voice sometimes says more than our words. It is important to listen to the tone of voice AND the words in order to understand what someone is saying. The tone of voice changes the message and what the person is trying to say.
Ways to play:
1.Practice the tone of voice text messages by altering what you say to make it sound Rude or Friendly.
2.Listen to someone read the text messages and sort by whether they said it in a rude or friendly manner.
3.Discuss how you would respond if the message was friendly and if it was rude.
4.Use the homework sheets as homework, or as discussions in the therapy room.
