Authors: Michelle Garcia Winner

This is where to start to learn more about social interaction and social awareness. Understanding the perspectives of others is key to all interpersonal relationships. Many students, including those with high-functioning autism, Asperger syndrome, ADHD and similar social and communication challenges, have difficulties understanding that other people have perspectives that are different from their own. Michelle's model of perspective-taking makes research into Theory of Mind practical for teaching these students and even students who may be considered "neurotypical." Specific lessons, and how to apply them in different settings, are explored. The Four Steps of Communication creates a framework for understanding the complexities of social thinking and for enhancing perspective-taking in students. Social Behavior Mapping and IEPs are examined. How to focus concepts for ages and skill levels are presented through practical handouts, activities and lesson ideas. This second edition of Thinking About YOU Thinking About ME contains much expanded content, including two new chapters and an updated philosophy. The assessment chapter now includes the Social Thinking Dynamic Assessment Protocol®, with more detailed assessment techniques. For ages K-adulthood, the book provides the foundation for teaching students how to make social thinking work in their real lives and for using books like Superflex,You Are A Social Detective and others.

Thinking About You Thinking About Me 2nd Edition discusses the challenges of trying to use standardized tests to quantify an abstract, complex, synergistic process and presents the Informal Social Thinking Dynamic Assessment Protocol®.

Thinking About You Thinking About Me features three chapters on assessments: the first describes the Informal Social Thinking Assessment Protocol®, the second gives comments and critiques on other assessment techniques, and the third provides the 29 pages of the Informal Social Thinking Assessment Protocol® and checklist to encourage others to use these informal assessment tools. Research done on the effectiveness of one of the informal subtests included in the protocol is posted on our website; "The Double Interview Task: Assessing the Social Communication of Children with Asperger Syndrome".
