Abstract
This game provides specific training in social language skills. Young students learn what is socially acceptable and what isn't as they help the loveable sheepdog, Maxwell, find his manor. It is for students with social and pragmatic deficits due to autism spectrum disorders, nonverbal learning disorder, behavioral disorders, and/or emotional disorders.
-
The 300 question cards are organized into six skill areas:
- Nonverbal Communication—acting out emotions with events, using gestures and facial expressions to communicate simple thoughts or sentences
- Conversation Skills—giving information, asking questions, and using appropriate voice style for various situations
- Being a Friend—getting along with peers in a variety of situations that involve sharing, apologizing, complimenting, saying "no," joining a group, borrowing, lending, handling teasing, consoling, protecting, accusing, and tattling
- Self-Control—controlling impulsivity, taking responsibility, and asking permission
- Be Polite—using polite forms, such as please, thank you, and excuse me, in specific situations
- Follow the Rules—know the classroom and social rules (e.g., raising your hand, not interrupting, returning something you've borrowed)
