Social skills refers to an individual’s ability to interpret and use language and behavior to appropriately interact with others. Children and adolescents who present with social communication challenges often have difficulty participating in social settings, interacting with peers, and achieving academic success. These students often require direct therapy intervention provided by speech-language pathologists, social workers, and/or board-certified behavior analysts to target these social skills.
Finding engaging and effective social skills materials to use with students can be challenging. Searching the internet for social skills worksheets is often unproductive and time-consuming. Oftentimes, we download a worksheet only to find that it does not effectively target the skill we want: it isn’t age-appropriate or falls completely flat– taking our students less than 5 minutes to complete it.
So what makes a quality social skills worksheet? First and foremost, we want to use worksheets as a way to practice meaningful social skills. Second, we want to use worksheets that are engaging and fun for our students– Worksheets don’t have to be boring; but instead, they can be a powerful tool to keep in your toolbox to promote engaging and productive discussions with your students. Better yet, a social skills worksheet you don’t have to create yourself– bingo! That’s where Everyday Speech comes in.
