Book Description

This game is designed as a resource to help young people learn to understand and prepare for work experience, job-seeking, interviews and coping in the workplace. In particular young people with a diagnosis on the Autism Spectrum find interviews difficult in the same way as they may struggle with day-to-day conversations. Many of the elements of the interactions are similar: greeting appropriately; making eye contact; using appropriate facial expression; listening carefully; asking good questions; requesting clarification, etc. This fun discussion card-based activity encourages participants to: answer questions; appraise themselves; decide whether advice suggested is good or bad; and, role-play situations and interactions using hypothetical scenarios. There are 74 cards and the game can be played by any number of people, although 4-6 is recommended. It is suitable for people of age 15+.
