More understanding. Less frustration.
Individuals with communication difficulties, delays and disabilities struggle to understand and be understood. These interactive cards, with their colorful, original drawings, can help, making such communication more precise and less frustrating.
Here are just a few ways the Sensory & Social Emotional Set can be used:
1. Create a visual schedule of activities to be performed in therapy (example: scooter board, ring toss, bean bags).
2. Make into choice cards. The individual can choose his/her preferred activity.
3. Play, "How do they feel?" Pick out or turn over an emotion card and have the individual act out or label the emotion.
4. Use for empathy training. Put out several emotion pictures. Then, either read from a book or simply ask a question, (example: "Amy cried when her mother drove away." How do you think Amy was feeling? sad? happy? mad? "Robert screamed when he saw the rat!" How do you think Robert was feeling? Surprised? Scared? Shy?).
Together these clear and vivid drawings provide a framework for improving communication. And that translates to more success and less distress all around.
