Talkabout is a social communication skills programme which we have adapted to suit the needs of our students. The sessions take place in a small group or individual setting depending on the level of input required.
Groups run on a daily basis and the students involved attend one or two of these in the week.
In these lessons we work on:
- Self- awareness and self esteem
- Body Language
- Conversation skills
- Friendship skills
- The way we talk
- Assertiveness skills
Groups also go out in to the community to put into practice strategies learnt in their lessons. Talkabout has had a positive impact on the social skills of the pupils involved; there has been an overall improvement in self-esteem and confidence in communicating with others.
