About the Series

TALKABOUT is a whole scheme of work to help you assess, teach and measure your work easily. It uses a hierarchical method of teaching social skills which means that having assessed the child using the TALKABOUT assessment, teachers will choose the appropriate level or book to start work at. This means that you may start by developing a child’s self-awareness and self-esteem before progressing onto body language. You will then move onto conversation skills and then onto friendship skills and assertiveness.
