Withdrawn, inattentive, or experiencing the communication difficulties associated with Asperger Syndrome, some children have trouble interpreting social situations, reading facial expressions and body language, and grasping metaphorical speech.
Clue Cards help children and teens learn to perceive and understand the details of social presentation. An informative instruction booklet offers clear guidelines for using these 5 card decks:
• Get a Clue – children find ‘clues’ in 15 social situations and make inferences based on those clues
• Faces & Feelings – using 40 cards, children link expressions with associated emotions
• Body Language – matching photos and captions, children explore body language for clues about thoughts and feelings
• The 5 W’s – children analyse 10 social scenes by asking ‘who-what-where-when-why’ questions
• In Other Words – children learn 30 idioms and 26 proverbs that often pop up in social conversation.
Clue Cards are a great way to help children develop the habit of noticing and inferring in social situations.
