Social Inferencing with Pictures

  •  Target the ability to make social inferences with a variety of stimuli  

  • Improve the ability to understand emotions and interpret body language and facial expressions

  • Open-ended questions with multiple choice options

  • User profiles allow for individual user scoring   

Seven Social Inferencing Activities

​Inference Pics has 300+ engaging, real-life inference pictures and seven social inferencing activities: What has happened?, Jobs, Places, Seasons, Feelings, Thoughts, Conversations.


to use Inference Pics

Each inference activity has two questions. The first question asks the user to make an inference e.g. What has happened? How are they feeling? etc. The second question in each activity is “How do you know?”.


This is to promote verbal expression and the person’s ability to find the clues in the picture (e.g. body language, facial expression) and make an appropriate social inference.​​​

A wonderful, user-friendly app that I’ve used with many of my clients to work on expressive language and inferencing skills. With multiple sections, this app can be incorporated into so many sessions, and the client will be challenged with new stimuli every time!
