Description

Talkabout for Children: Developing Social Skills is a bestselling professional workbook supporting educators and therapists who deliver social and relationship skills groups for children with social, emotional or behavioural difficulties.

Social competence is an essential aspect of our quality of life and this resource will help to develop these skills in young children. This resources creates the second level of the Talkabout heirachy, where self-awareness comes before non-verbal skills and non-verbal comes before verbal, with assertiveness coming last.

Resources include:

  • an assessment framework
  • planning and evaluation forms
  • a three-term intervention plan for schools
  • over 60 structured activity sessions focussing on social skills
  • all the supplementary handouts and images needed to deliver the sessions.

This second edition is presented with full-colour illustrations and handouts, and includes a new introduction by Alex Kelly reflecting on her own experiences of using the resources since they were first developed.
