Social Communication Groups

Recommended Posts

We have just been on ECaT training as communication skills is a problem in our setting.


They told us about social communication groups. Does anyone else do these? What do you do in them?


We have a mixed group of 2-3yrs.


Any advice please

We have done social communication groups for quite a few years with our SEN pupils. They usually follow a structure, indicated by a visual timetable. So you will have a group of 4 children, one being you SEN and the other children are role models. You start with the 'hello' song, when that is done a child is chosen to pull that picture off the visual timetable and post it in a 'finished' envelope. Then you continue in this manner, through a few activities, usually focussing on turn taking and then finish with the 'goodbye' song.

Hi Kic106

If you got to www.leics.gov/ecat scroll to the bottom you will see Listen an Learn downloads that show you the way to set up scgs. Lots of activity advice and ideas and once your comfortabke with these you can think up ideas to suit your own group.

We use these daily, adapting for different needs and abilities and the children are showing great progress in listening and communication...they are nearly always ready and willing to join the groups ( think best done in quite area or seperate room if you have one, so no distractions). Hope you find them as good an idea as we have!
