Synopsis

Talkabout for Children 2 Developing Social Skills by Alex Kelly

Designed specifically for young children (aged 4 and above) or children with special needs, this practical resource is packed with activities and games for developing social skills. Social competence is an essential aspect of our quality of life and this resource will help you to develop these skills in young children. The book includes: over 60 activities to develop social skills in body language, conversations and assertiveness; a CD with colour versions of the activities to print out and use; a teaching plan to help teachers incorporate groups into the school curriculum; a short introduction to working with children with social skills difficulties; an assessment of social skills and planning sheet for intervention; 25 excellent group cohesion activities to use within your groups; and, forms and evaluation sheets to help with the smooth running of groups. This resource has already been piloted across the UK and abroad and has proved to be very popular with teachers, therapists and children. Puppets and animals bring some of the concepts to life and new Talkabout characters help the children to learn these essential skills.
