How it works:
Choice-a-Quence be played with a child individually or in a group. Using 20 choice and 20 consequence cards, children match each choice with a variety of possible consequences. Most excitingly played as a game show, the cards can also be used to role play, as a memory game or as story starters. Ultimately, families learn to use these cards to improve behavior, social and language skills in real-life situations.

Why it works:
The game provides specific vocabulary for kids to use in various social situations. It addresses the structure of asking questions and answering in grammatically correct ways. The game also helps children learn that there is often more than one outcome to a social situation, teaching flexibility.
