This information sheet details games and activities designed to support attention and listening as well as turn taking. During the games encourage the child to look at the person who is talking and encourage turn taking. Some ideas are given on how to alter the difficulty of the games to allow them to be differentiated to the ability of the child. The games in this information sheet will be suitable for small groups or the whole class.
