The Amigos School
Introduces Lizard Brain
I am an elementary school counselor in Cambridge, MA. I love your Social Thinking books and your Superflex books and curriculum. I use all of these resources with a wide array of kids. Your work has been useful to me in talking to students about "social skills," it has been useful in talking to parents and teachers about social communication and it has helped the parents of many of my students find new ways to communicate with their children. Thank you!

Canterbury Elementary School Third Graders
Dear Ms. Garcia-Winner and Ms. Madrigal,
We want you to know how much our students have benefited from the Superflex Program. They had the characters memorized before we had even talked about or discussed them all. The students in our Think Social group are enthusiastic about the program and look forward to Tuesday mornings. In the classroom, we hear them using the strategies and recognizing when an Unthinkable has taken over their brain. We have been teaching the program in a small group setting in the resource room but general educational teachers are picking up on the concepts and are starting to refer to them in their classrooms.
The group decided to make up a new character. As teachers of students on the Autism Spectrum we noticed that they often get stuck or upset when they can't do something as perfectly as they perceive it should be done. So, our group created Purrfectocat. The students wrote out the new Unthinkable's powers and Superflex strategies to defect him/her. We thought they created a character worth sharing with you. Included are pictures and letters that the students wrote to you.
