Game to teach children about personal space
Many children, especially those with ADHD, autism or Asperger’s are unaware of the socially accepted physical boundaries, that most of us take for granted, which is where this game can help.
This game helps them learn what’s ‘too close’, ‘too far’, or ‘just right’ in various social situations.
Children take turns performing social scenarios described on Role Play Cards, and then the group decides whether their proximity to each other is appropriate for the particular situation. Players learn that standing too close or too far away can make people feel uncomfortable or confused in certain circumstances. Focused and fun, this game is a gentle way to help children grasp the idea of personal space and thereby improve their relationships.
For 4 to 8 players or teams, with a teacher or therapist.
