People communicate using not only words, but also tone of voice and body language. Many children, however, fail to notice these relatively subtle social cues. Too Much, Too Little, Just Right Game teaches children to pay attention to tone of voice, observe body language, and note how these cues affect the message.
Children assume two roles during game play: Messenger and Listener. They learn by observing others and by getting immediate feedback about their own expressive abilities. They learn to adjust volume, expression, gestures, and other physical cues in order to communicate effectively achieve greater self-control, and develop more appropriate and satisfying social relationships.
Ideal for 2 to 8 players, this game can be easily used with larger groups or classrooms as well, and is an exceptional tool for those working with children who have autism spectrum disorders. Because it focuses on social interaction among players rather than on a game board, it can be played virtually anywhere.
Included with the game, is an Express-o-Meter, a sliding ruler that allows you to give students feedback about whether they are communicating appropriately.
