Getting the Picture
A valuable visual learning and comprehension aid for people who find social situations challenging. This fully photocopiable resource has been specifically designed to improve inference, narrative and sequencing skills, correctly interpreting and responding behaviour.
Packed full of thought provoking illustrations showing different people in different places accompanied by a series of questions designed to encourage prediction and inference skills. Participants are asked to consider everything from who the person in the picture is, what they might be doing, and where they might be going, to how they may be feeling and why.
Questions can be completed individually or brainstormed as a group, and there are three types of illustration to work with, single person, picture sequence or large scenes containing several interactions. The final section teaches sequencing skills by providing muddled picture narratives that need to be ordered.
Useful tool for SLT's, OT's, teaching staff, parents and anybody else looking to help people to understand and connect with the world around them.
"This is a really cost-effective resource for anyone working with teenagers in either mainstream or specialist settings. It provides coherent explanations of inference and narrative skills and explains their importance in the context of educational policy. The clear aims for each chapter and differentiation of worksheet levels make this resource useful for inclusion in language programmes set by therapists for young people or for parents / caregivers and other professionals to follow. The illustrations are representative of a variety of daily life situations and age appropriate." Speech & Language Therapy in Practice
"It is a resource I'd recommend for all teachers, assistants and therapists to use. I would also imagine it would be easy for parents to use at home."NAPLIC Matters
