Problem Scale (Emotional Resilience) - social communication / autism / ASD / SEN

Problem Scale activity. Designed for children who struggle with resilience or to differentiate a big problem from a tiny problem. Accompanying cards give problem suggestions for discussion of where each problem would fit on the problem scale - is the problem a huge one or a tiny one.

This activity is suitable for 1 to 1 or small group work. It could be extended by use of the feelings poster to encourage learners to think about how each problem would make them feel. Theory of Mind skills can also be promoted through discussion if a problem is viewed differently by learners.
