Social Skills: Abstract vs. Concrete Words

$15.00

Although in the English language it would appear that we all speak and hear the same language, there are multiple languages in one if we probe more deeply. For example, at Fabic we often speak of an ‘abstract’ and a ‘concrete’ language all wrapped up in ‘the English language’.

Planning and Organisation

$15.00

Everyone has their own natural strengths and their own natural weaknesses. 

The task of organising, planning and sequencing is a weakness that is shared by many people.
