Talkabout for Children: Developing Social Communication, 3rd edition is a bestselling professional workbook, designed to support educators and therapists who deliver social and relationship skills groups for children.

Social communication is an essential aspect of our quality of life and this resource helps to develop this in young children aged 4-11 years old. The book introduces the second level of the Talkabout hierarchy and provides three sections full of practical activities exploring the areas of Talkabout Body Language, Talkabout Conversations, and Talkabout Assertiveness. Resources include:

  • Planning and evaluation forms
  • A three-term intervention plan for schools
  • Over 60 structured activity sessions focusing on social communication
  • Ideas for group cohesion activities to use at the beginning and end of sessions
  • All the supplementary handouts and images needed to deliver the session, with resources available to photocopy or download and print.

Fully updated and revised, this third edition is presented with full-colour illustrations and handouts and includes a new introduction by Alex Kelly reflecting on her own experiences of using the resources since they were first developed. This key resource will help teachers, teaching assistants, health care professionals and parents to support children’s social communication.
