Topic: Role Playing to Learn Social Skills

I work at a Center school with students who have EBD, (ADHD, ADD, or multiple diagnosis) I love all the materials on this site and am making use of them. If any additional role play materials exist for these students. Or videos I would love to have them! Tim Corlett – Social Skills Central member

Tim is right. Role play is a fabulous way to help struggling children learn new social skills. Rather than simply talking to children about how to make and keep friends, role play helps them to learn and practice the skills necessary to get along with other children. It is an active learning experience that leads to ownership of skills that can be used in every day life.

We are currently adapting a card game called Roll a Role for the website. It will be available for members as a downloadable game by the end of February. In the meantime, the game (and many other useful products) is available for purchase through our store —

We have adapted one of the Roll-a-Role games for this site. You can find The Bullying Prevention Roll Play Game on the Games page. We plan to adapt the other Roll-a-Role Games in the next few months so please check back frequently.
