Description: These cards were created to be picture stimuli to discuss relatable problems and talk about the size of the problem, consequences, how you would react, and how you would solve the problem (there are questions probes on the card). These cards are meant to be open ended (no right or wrong answers). The cards were designed to be used at the therapist’s or teacher’s discretion and can be used for social skills, language processing, narrative skills, or just as a conversation starter for carry over. There is no text description of the problem, the student will look at a picture and analyze the visual information. Answers may vary on the child’s perception of the size of the problem. The therapist/teacher may choose to provide a narrative or example if the student needs that level of support. There are 52 total real photo cards Teaching tips: Keep in mind, each person will have different ideas about the problems, consequences/reactions, and solutions based their unique backgrounds and experiences. The therapist/teacher should be conscious of this and guide the student in the conversation appropriately. If the child’s perception of the problem is bigger or smaller than it is, this is a good opportunity to discuss the size of the problem and the size of the reaction. I have some students who struggle with this (for example: a broken pencil is a small problem and should not have a “big problem” reaction such as yelling or getting angry.
