Learning to read how other people feel, and how to react, is difficult for all young people. And of course it’s even more challenging for those with learning difficulties. These resources will help young people with special needs examine their own feelings - anger, frustration, embarrassment, happiness - and recognise those feelings in others. The simple narratives describe… A date narrated by both the boy and the girl – was this really the same evening? Staying out late and the issues it raises with parents… Sibling tensions – getting beyond the squabbling… Learning to accept a single parent’s new partner… Understanding the teacher/pupil relationship.

Supports the ASDAN Transition Challenge and Towards Independence Life Skills courses.
