Social skills activities to increase awareness of social cause and effect for children with Asperger’s and other autism spectrum disorders
For therapy and classroom work, The People Points Project provides social skills lessons to teach children with Asperger’s and other autism spectrum disorders to show concern for others, give compliments, deal with losing and disappointment, and look their best.
This concrete and highly visual social skills lesson scheme is designed to appeal to children with autism. The impressions one makes on other people are described as “Positive People Points,” which one strives to earn, and “Negative People Points,” which one strives to avoid.
The People Points Project tool kit from Autism Teaching Strategies includes:
- CD containing beautifully illustrated PowerPoint social skills lessons to teach children with autism how to “score points” in other people’s minds
- Illustrated social skills worksheets (also printable from the CD)
- Illustrated social skills wall displays, printable from the CD
