Getting To Know You Questions for Kids

Getting to know the kids is the fun part of therapy. The first week of school I quickly wrote down these questions, printed them and cut them into individual question strips and put them in a box. We played games, read the questions and talked for our first session. It helped to get a feel for each students communication abilities and it was a fun way to break the ice. These are not the best questions but feel free to copy them and use them for your own getting to know you activities. Click read more for the full list.
