Communication Pictionary

We played this today at work as we talked about communication skills.  It was a blast!

Objective:
To encourage patients to understand and implement effective communication skills.

How to Play:
A patients picks a word out of a container from the AT.  The pt. must get the group to guess the word by explaining what the object is to another patient who must draw the object.  The patient who is drawing will not know the word.  The patient explaining the object can only use shape and size words to explain the object to the drawer.  The drawer may ask questions. 

For example, if the word is house, the person might say: draw a square and on top of the square draw a triangle.

Possible Words include:
  Tree
  Dog
  Cat
  House
  Tree
  Airplane
  Bird
  Car
  Etc.
