Social Skills Packet of Worksheets Lisa Flowers

Social Skills Activities Packet

With this packet of thirteen products in their repertoire, speech language pathologists, social workers, psychologists, teachers, and life skill coaches will be able to effectively help their students and clients develop the social skills necessary to function adequately in the social world. The packet begins with a Communication Skills Questionnaire that can start to open your students’ and clients’ eyes to the myriad skills with which they may receive help, while assisting you in choosing goals to target. The next two products, Entering Conversations and Conversational Elaboration, are pretty self-explanatory. I’ve found that these are two of the conversation skills many of my students most want to improve. Polite Wording and Tact help students start to think about others’ and how their wording affects their listeners. Time Sensitivity and Kinesics and Conversation Skills both involve being sensitive to your communicative partner’s time limits, the first by considering the context and the second by observing and interpreting non-verbal signs of interest or disinterest. Editing Verbal Narratives and Speaking to Different Listeners takes listener presupposition to the next level because students must now take into consideration not only their communicative partner’s time limits but also their listener’s interests and needs by adjusting their own content accordingly. At this point, many students are ready for Developing Empathy, which further improves perspective-taking skills and provides closer-to-real-life practice at considering others’ feelings. Complaint Letters: Reader Presupposition is for more advanced students ready to dissect and analyze wording (with lots of examples and support) in terms of its effect on others at a more sophisticated level. The last social skills product in this packet, Perspective Taking, works on generalization of the skills learned by assigning the task of observing and analyzing social interactions in the “real world”, outside of the remediation setting.
