Understanding Tone of Voice and Body Language Social Story

Often times a person’s tone of voice gives people clues about what they really think and feel. Tone of voice refers to the way a person is speaking. It is about how people sound when they say words, not just the words they actually say. The same words spoken in different tones of voice can convey very different messages. When tones of voice are combined with facial expressions and body language, a person’s message becomes more clear and understandable. This product was designed to help students learn to attend to a variety of factors related to tone of voice that help clarify messages beyond actual words spoken.

This product uses real life images of people with transparent backgrounds to ensure that students only attend to the essential elements and concepts described.
