Exploring Evidence with the Social Thinking® Methodology and Measuring Outcomes

Instructor: Pamela Crooke

Please note that this course begins promptly at 9:00 am Pacific Time. Our role, as interventionists (parents or professionals) working with social learners, is to seek evidence-based interventions and then use common sense, practical, and efficient ways to measure learning outcomes. Ultimately, interventionists must be able to talk about the theory underlying each curriculum, comic, game, worksheet, or app they choose and then justify with tools to measure progress (or not). But are we all using the same definitions when we talk about evidence, measures, and outcomes? In this course, attendees will learn about the evidence within the Social Thinking® Methodology and will learn how to design tools (e.g., rubrics) to accurately measure social learning outcomes. We also provide tips for writing IEP goals that overlap and embed into the academic standards rather than stand alone.

The social brain forms the foundation for how children, students, and clients interact, learn to write, comprehend others’ perspectives, use narrative language, participate in groups, and learn in classrooms or online. This course examines how abstract thinking, perspective-taking, executive functioning, and self-regulation impact one’s ability to engage in written expression, reading comprehension and working in groups. Learn practical strategies to teach social competencies.

Evidence & Measurement

Exploring Evidence with the Social Thinking® Methodology and Measuring Outcomes

Please note that this course begins promptly at 9:00 am Pacific Time. Our role, as interventionists (parents or professionals) working with social learners, is to seek evidence-based interventions and then use common sense, practical, and efficient ways to measure learning outcomes. Ultimately, interventionists must be able to talk about the theory underlying each curriculum, comic, game, worksheet, or app they choose and then justify with tools to measure progress (or not). But are we all using the same definitions when we talk about evidence, measures, and outcomes? In this course, attendees will learn about the evidence within the Social Thinking® Methodology and will learn how to design tools (e.g., rubrics) to accurately measure social learning outcomes. We also provide tips for writing IEP goals that overlap and embed into the academic standards rather than stand alone.
