Please Consider

This app would be best incorporated in discussion, rather than having the individual read through the concepts on their own.
An adolescent and adult version of this app is also available.

Generalise Skills and Knowledge

Consider opportunities to discuss the concepts in a group, such as why these ‘rules’ are in place and what specific situations they may have seen them. Consider supporting the group of students to role play examples of the concepts.
Consider identifying some concepts that the individual could focus on. Discuss these concepts prior to going into the relevant situation or environment including specific strategies for what the person could say or do to follow the rule. Support the individual to recall the ‘rule’ from the app and the strategies you planned and demonstrate the skill with the identfied context.
