  • The Traffic Life Game is designed to provide an engaging and memorable group learning experience for people with learning disabilities. It provides a safe environment to discuss sensitive issues around relationships, personal safety and risks with the support and guidance of a health and social care professional.

    Up to 4 players supported by a facilitator take turns to move round the townscape board, collecting cards to build their own fun, imaginative character and encountering simple scenarios around everyday life and social situations. A simple traffic light system helps players recognise potential risks and make decisions about how they should respond to situations:

    • 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. Situations covered by scenario cards cover the following broad topics:

     

    • Social situations
    • Friends and family relationships
    • Romantic relationships

     

    Facilitation

    Requires facilitation by a health and social care professional, teacher, support worker or similar. A comprehensive facilitator guide is provided.

     

    Audience

    Suitable for adults and older children with learning disabilities.
