School can be a frustrating and confusing experience for children who have not developed their communication skills. Not only will accessing the curriculum be difficult, but so will developing cooperative skills and friendships.
Time to Talk has been developed to teach and develop oral language and social interaction skills to children aged 4–8 to make these aspects of school easier. Containing 40 sessions, designed to take place two or three times a week, Time to Talk will help you teach and develop the ‘rules’ of interaction with the help of Ginger the Bear, who features in all the activities.
Skills taught include:
- Eye contact
- Awareness of feelings
- Giving/following instructions
- Play skills.
