Effective social interaction does not come naturally to many children with learning disabilities and yet is vital for developing and maintaining relationships and for independent living outside the school context.
This social skills programme for pupils with mild to moderate learning disabilities, physical and/or medical disabilities and for those with special needs in mainstream education is divided into three units:
- let’s communicate
- let’s be friends and let’s practice.
It aims to increase self-esteem and improve listening skills and expressive language abilities. Teacher’s notes, photocopiable illustrated pupil worksheets and assessment and evaluation forms are included.
