    'You Choose!' by Sue Nicholls. This resource is born out of a passion to get people talking. You Choose! encourages people to chat about themselves and what they like, building up their confidence, self-esteem and a sense of personal identity. It's also a chance for listening, questioning and social interaction. It is suitable: for all ages, with individuals or in small groups; at school (eg pse lessons, 1-1 learning support), for speech and language therapists, special educational needs workers, play workers, youth workers, group leaders and families. Adaptable: 5 min ice breaker, warm-ups, circle time topics, time fillers, workshop sessions. The cards may be particularly useful for building good working relationships with individuals and groups prior to addressing more complex or challenging issues. 60 cards, with instructions cards, 6 sections, including: Which would you choose? Yes or No? Choose one special item; Would you rather? If you were. What would you not want? Examples: Would you choose talking or listening? Saturday or Sunday? Would you like a year doing something completely different to what you usually do? Choose a special item you couldn't live without. Would you rather spend the night in a cave, an igloo, a tree house or in the bath? If you were a type of weather, what type of weather would you be? What would you not want to find on your doorstep in the morning?
