What's the Buzz?
a social skills enrichment programme for primary students (2011)

'What's the Buzz? a social skills enrichment programme for primary students' was originally published in 2011. In 2019 it was revised and a second edition became available. Four chapters were replaced, Archie stories were added to set the scene and the original edition underwent a comprehensive 60% rewrite.

Even though the original Primary version (2011) is no longer available, many who already have it will continue to use these resources. This page has been built to preview the resources available online for this original. There are about 50 individual resources and they are accessible to our online subscribers.

These range from introductory letters and consents, role-play cards, pre and post Archie images for each story (with the option of the authors reading the stories to your students), group values posters, thumbs up cards, achievement and graduation certificates, activity sheets, questionnaires, quizzes, pre and post social functioning surveys, the data tracking facility and 'After the Buzz, social thinking ideas for parents and caregivers'.

The Online RESOURCES provide direct and convenient access which makes the delivery of the program easier and more engaging. If you wish to secure online access to these resources, click here to register.
