“What do you mean my words can cause others to feel things ?!” I get this look a lot from my spectrum students when work on social language. I have some friends who are, well, blunt. They say their opinion, whatever it may be, when ever they want, without thinking that their words will have an impact.
Example. I got this really cute necklace from Etsy ( fun fact, I love Etsy! ) and wore it to work the day after I got it. I had some students tell me they liked the color or give another nice compliment. I was on top of the world: I had on a cute accessory, my students were giving me compliments, I was on cloud 9! Then one of my friends said he thought it was ugly. Well, my day definitely came down a few clouds.
This launched into a conversation about how our words affect other people. I realized that several of my students who were working on pragmatic goals had these difficulties and I had no materials to target this specific goal! Well I had do fix that.
Introducing… Social Cause and Effect!
This activity provides social scenarios and a reaction. The student must state what aspect of the scenario caused the reaction.
There are 24 scenario cards
16 reinforcement cards that go with the game board 🙂
This activity is up on my TpT store if you want to add this to your speech room. Thanks for stopping by!
