Traffic Life Game
The Traffic Life Game helps health & social care
professionals discuss sensitive issues around relationships, safety and risk with
learning disabled adults. It offers players a safe environment to talk about
these important issues and to support each other.
Supported by a facilitator, up to 4 players take turns to
roll the dice and move around the townscape board, collecting Build-A-Character
cards and responding to simple scenarios based around everyday life and social
situations. The game uses a traffic light risk assessment system to help
players understand how they should respond in certain scenarios:
- Red: Don’t do it. It’s not safe.
- Amber: Need to think. I’m not sure.
- Green. Go ahead. It’s OK to try.
A discussion between the players and facilitator follows,
and this helps players understand why a certain response would be most
appropriate in a given situation.
also contains a fun “Build-A-Character” activity, which encourages players to
use their imagination and create characters using cards collected during the
