Social Skills: Tact

This handout works on perspective taking and the development of empathy. Individuals on the autism spectrum often struggle with these skills, and this handout helps students understand others’ perspectives and feelings. The twenty-one statements presented contain various tactless sentiments, including bragging, offensiveness, prejudice, inappropriateness, and over-generalization, which can be used for extensive discussion of others’ viewpoints. An answer key is included.
