Beyond Academics: Prioritizing Social Learning Potential for All Students

Let’s celebrate another year of Social Thinking teaching, learning & discovery! Our eagerly awaited Social Thinking Annual Global Providers’ Online Conference is now in its 16th year, and we’re so excited for you to join us for 3 days of innovative thinking, tools, and strategies presented by expert practitioners.


This 3-day livestream conference will explore several unique perspectives on how we—as educators, therapists, and parents—can empower learners to thrive (not just survive) in the social world at school, at home, and when online. We will discuss ways to build the social learning potential of all students while also protecting and promoting well-being. Each day will begin with 90 minutes with internationally renowned keynote speakers sharing practical tools from their points of view and expertise. Keynotes will be followed by 90 minutes of meaningful connections and new tools and thinking from Social Thinking® Methodology experts. This multiday event promises to challenge assumptions about how schools and professionals address social learning, academic demands, bullying/cyberbullying, restorative justice, learning differences, problem solving, supporting friendships, building empathy, and teaching focused on well-being rather than academic success.


Access this 3-day livestream conference for one low price of $59 to $69 per day. All presentations will be recorded and available with 30-day replay to 5:00PM Pacific Time on July 25, 2023 for registered attendees. Each course/day registration includes access to both the livestream and the recorded replay! 3 hours toward CE credit per day, available for select professionals.
