Communication Skills

Every now and again there’s something that’s put on Facebook that really encourages me to open my eyes, prick my ears and rub my hands in glee. 

The most recent was a photo of an autistic pupil’s answer sheet to their teacher’s spelling test. 

It’s one of those things that on the surface made me think that someone has got the instructions really wrong… shame on me.

When I figured out what I was reading I realised that the person completing the test…. well.. that’s for you to figure out. 

I’ve used this recently as an excellent exercise in management training as a challenge to re-write the instructions in a way that leaves no room for interpretation.. I suggest you try it too as it really has my brain doing push ups and so hopefully has yours too!
