Alex Kelly’s internationally renowned Talkabout books are a series of practical workbooks designed to develop the self-awareness, self-esteem and social skills of people with special needs. This core manual in the Talkabout series provides fully adaptable session plans, activities and games to focus on four key areas of social skills: Body Language, The Way We Talk, Conversations and Assertiveness. Now in its second edition, this revised version of the Talkabout manual has been edited for US professionals, with a foreword by Nancy Tarshis and Debbie Meringolo (Altogether Social LLC, New York).

Contents includes:

  • A social skills assessment and intervention planning tool to help identify the individual needs of each client or group
  • Over 60 structured activities, with a focus on body language, paralinguistic features, conversation and assertiveness
  • 25 group cohesion activities to help facilitate productive group sessions

Suitable for Speech and Language Pathologists, Teachers, Social Workers, Child Psychologists and School Counsellors, the photocopiable resources within this volume are suitable for use with children, adolescents and adults in small groups or individually.
