Seven Social Inferencing Activities
Inference Pics has seven social inferencing activities: What has happened?, Jobs, Places, Seasons, Feelings, Thoughts, Conversations.
to use Inference Pics
Each 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.

Support the person to find the clues in the picture e.g. body language, facial expression and to make an appropriate 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!
