Have you ever seen a duck in a tree?
EDIT: I'm working on a project for school. I have to come up with two activities for a child with some social issues. I'd like to sort of piggy back on the idea of using pictures of facial expressions that can help Autistic children 'read' faces, but for mine, it would be how to act in a social situation. I was hoping to come up with 5 ideas where the child (he's 5 and going to kindergarten) could look and maybe talk about what he would do. So, one idea is to have a picture of kids playing on the playground, and ask him what he would do if he wanted to join the other kids - I'd be looking for answers like "ask if I can play", that type of thing. Another would be maybe a child looking sad over a broken toy or dropped ice cream cone, where he might be able to show some sympathy, or ask if they need help. Any other ideas? Both his parents and I are concerned that he doesn't interact with other kids much at all. He has been observed by the school psychologist, and they don't think he's on the Autism spectrum...he's just got very poor social skills outside of his home/family.
