Knowing how to have a conversation with another peer or adult is an important life skill. We use questions to gather information, feed our curiosity, and learn about others and the world. We use answers to share our opinions, express our needs, and make connections. Through shared discussions and games, students will be developing these interpersonal skills in a small group of peers on a regular basis.
Students in this program will have opportunities to:
- Discuss what they did on the weekend and other relevant topics (e.g., school, home, family, friends, hobbies, interests).
- Ask and answer questions (both yes/no type questions and wh- questions) to peers.
- Practice conversational skills (e.g., asking for more details, sharing relevant follow-up information or opinions).
- Recognize that other people have likes and dislikes different from their own.
