Role-play your way to better understanding of personal space!
By Sandra Singer, Ph.D., Lois Feigenbaum, LCSW, and Claudia Weiss, LCSW
Many kids, especially those with ADHD, autism, or Aspergers, are unaware of the socially accepted physical boundaries that most of us take for granted. This game helps them learn whats too close, too far, or just right in various social situations. Children take turns performing social scenarios described on Role Play Cards, and then the group decides whether their proximity to each other is appropriate for the particular situation. Players learn that standing too close or too far away can make people feel uncomfortable or confused in certain circumstances. Focused and fun, this game is a gentle way to help kids grasp the idea of personal space and thereby improve their relationships. For 4 to 8 players or teams, with a teacher or therapist.
