This activity is a great resource for teaching kinesics (the ability to accurately interpret non-verbal social cues) and applying that skill to conversations. Many individuals with Asperger's have difficulty assessing another person's interest in them. They may approach someone at an inopportune time, or continue talking with someone beyond that person's inclination to engage. Observation is essential to determining acceptance. Individuals on the autism spectrum do not naturally observe others' facial expressions, body language, actions, or interactions nearly as often, as attentively, or as effectively as neurotypical individuals do. This social skills activity gives students real-life practice at observing signs of interest versus disinterest from others, helping them to determine whether or not to continue in conversations.
