I am so impressed by Joel Shaul and his contributions on his site, A Spectrum of Possibilities. This activity is great for those on and off the spectrum, especially isocentric teenagers. You can use the worksheet by itself or print out the cards to prompt the conversation.

Thoughts & Suggestions
Joel describes it best:
“When you are talking to someone, it seems easy to talk about just what YOU want But it’s not fair for you to make other people hear something just because you want to say it. It is much better to talk in The Green Zone. This means you are talking about things that you and the other person both like. You are mixing your interests together. People like it much better when you do this.”
