Skills for Daily Living: Social Behaviour
These cards are intended for use with older children and adults who require support to understand appropriate social behaviour.
The illustrations depict situations showing either a good or a poor understanding of social skills - e.g. disturbing people; queue jumping; helping someone; caring for an animal; cheating in exams.
Detail to non-verbal communication is included such as posture, gesture, facial expression, respecting personal space and appearance.
More information below.
These specially commissioned full-colour illustrations show a variety of familiar situations and activities that depend on the awareness of acceptable social behaviour for everyone present to feel at ease.
Some cards show a good understanding of social skills, while others show a poor understanding by one or more people. On each card, the detailed illustrations show:
- the venue
- the activity taking place
- the particular behaviour of one or more people
- the effect of this behaviour on others
The cards also clearly show non-verbal communication such as posture, gesture, facial expression, respecting personal space and appearance, making the set useful for teachers, therapists and others working with individuals or with groups in the area of personal development.
