“My Shoes, Your Shoes.” The Importance of Showing Empathy. (Activity Worksheets For Teaching Conversation and Social Skills To Autistic Children)
In this material, you will find comprehensive guidance on teaching social skills, specifically empathy, to autistic children. Empathy, described as a superpower we all possess, is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. Through various activities, scenarios, and interactive exercises, children are encouraged to “walk in someone else’s shoes” and practice this essential skill. The “My Shoes, Your Shoes” section provides a structured activity with cards depicting different situations and emotions, allowing children to role-play and engage in conversations that foster empathy. This resource aims to help children navigate social interactions more effectively, understand diverse perspectives, and build stronger connections with those around them.
