Who should attend

This two-part series is filled with creative activities to help your students, clients, and patients move from being “Me” thinkers to “We” thinkers. Join us to explore core treatment* concepts you can use with social learners from K–12 and learn how lessons connect to academic standards. Our strategies can be used in the mainstream classroom to help everyone improve reading comprehension, written expression, conflict resolution, and work as part of a group. We also discuss the connections between the Social Thinking® Methodology and social emotional learning (SEL) programs, positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS), and response to intervention (RTI).

  • The difference between social self-awareness and social self-regulation
  • The dos and don'ts of using Social Thinking® teaching materials
  • Strategies for preparing young children to use the Superflex Curriculum when they get older
  • How to teach children about their brain’s strengths and weaknesses
  • Developing Social Detective thinking to figure out the plan of the group and the hidden rules and expectations
  • How teaching Superflex aligns with academic standards
  • Strategies and activity ideas from interventionists that can be used face to face or as part of distance learning
  • The scope and sequence of our books You are a Social Detective and Superflex…A Superhero Social Thinking Curriculum for teaching elementary school students
