Do you work with students who always say what’s on their minds? Do you have students that speak first and then think later? Do you have a student who constantly says inappropriate and unexpected things? If so, then this packet is just for you. Many students, including those diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder often have trouble ‘using a filter’ and have difficulty in understanding how some thoughts should not be said.
This product is a comprehensive packet that breaks this skill down into small manageable chunks. Multiple worksheets, social stories and activities will help teach your student:
1) The difference between ‘say it thoughts’ and ‘think it thoughts’.
2) What others will think if you say a ‘think it thought’ or ‘say it thought’ out loud.
3) Possible consequences of saying a ‘think it thought’ or ‘say it thought’
Also included are:
472- task cards These can be used for multiple interactive activities/games to further teach these concepts and enhance understanding.
Reflection sheets For students to break down instances in which they have said ‘think it thoughts’ and for them to analyze what they could have said instead.
