Teaching Social Thinking to Early Learners through Stories and Play-Based Activities( 4 - 7 yrs )

Connecting the dots: guide children’s early social learning and play experiences to strengthen social thinking and classroom learning. Using video examples and multi-sensory lessons, we provide helpful strategies and Social Thinking Vocabulary to teach children core concepts such as thinking thoughts and feeling feelings, thinking with their eyes, learning about the group plan, developing self-awareness about their body in the group, and how they use their whole body to listen! Engaging activities help kids learn in a group through social exploration and play. This course seeks to encourage the fidelity in how parents and professionals understand and implement our award-winning curriculum, storybooks, and music collection: We Thinkers! Volume 1 Social Explorers. The vocabulary and strategies are adaptable for use with other activities and age-appropriate literature. (Note: Series formerly named The Incredible Flexible You!).

Course Content Disclosure: While this course includes information on other products (books/lessons) and the research/work of other authors, it primarily focuses on the content included in the We Thinkers! Volume 1 Social Explorers curriculum guide and storybooks for the purpose of teaching this information with fidelity.

  • Description
  • What You Will Learn
  • Schedule
  • CEU

This course introduces professionals and parents to the many important facets of development that underlie social learning in preschool- and early elementary-aged children.  What looks like pure fun to us has important social consequences for the developing mind. The ability to participate in collaborative pretend play and learn as part of a group depends upon having a flexible brain, competent language ability, self-regulation, and solid social-emotional development as well as the executive function skills to multi-task the use of all of the above! The Common Core Standards highlight the importance of “listening and collaboration” in the classroom, which are hallmarks of developmental learning in preschool and during the early elementary years. This course is designed to give participants knowledge of the key researched components of social cognitive development from birth to five years of age as they connect to the core concepts taught through our curriculum. Social-emotional growth, executive functioning/self-regulation, and their interactive impact on socio-communicative abilities will also be explored from a research perspective. This course will focus on how to put the research and best practices of teaching social information into action.  We will introduce five Social Thinking Vocabulary concepts that have been adapted for children ages 4-7:  Thoughts and Feelings, The Group Plan, Thinking with Your Eyes, Body in the Group, and Whole Body Listening.  We will explore methods to teach these concepts through storybooks, music, structured activities, and play.  We will also look at different strategies for service delivery in a variety of settings. Strategies for home and school are designed for young children with average to strong language and learning abilities.
 
*Due to the mass confusion caused by use of the word "flexible" in the names of many of our products, The Incredible Flexible You series name has changed to We Thinkers! Volume 1 Social Explorers. No content has been changed in Volume 1; only the name has changed. Volume 2 is named We Thinkers! Volume 2 Social Problem Solvers.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss the difference between a skills-based approach and a social cognitive-based approach.
  2. Identify at least three key milestones that underlie the development of social cognitive skills from birth to five years of age.
  3. Explain why a preschool- or early elementary-aged child with a social cognitive learning challenge may have trouble with learning as part of a group.
  4. Identify ways to structure learning experiences in preschool and early elementary settings.
  5. Describe ways to teach at least three Social Thinking Vocabulary concepts to students ages 4-7.
     
7:30-8:30 Sign in and use "expected" social behavior to chat and find a seat. Conference begins at 8:30.
8:30-10:00 Explore the difference between a skills-based approach and a social cognitive-based approach in teaching social to young learners. Introduce the key components of social cognitive development from birth to five years of age.
10:00-10:10 Break
10:10-12:00 Best practices for teaching Social Thinking to early learners using the Social Thinking Vocabulary. Introduce the concepts: Thoughts and Feelings, The Group Plan, Thinking with Your Eyes. Practical strategies to teach these concepts through storybooks, music, structured activities, and play.

What Does Play Have to Do with Classroom Learning? Exploring Social Executive Functioning and Social Emotional Learning for Early Learners( 4 - 7 yrs )

Learn strategies to promote executive functioning in play, the classroom, and group collaboration! Practical, fun, and innovative strategies help kids understand group and play dynamics as well as improve how they work, play, and learn in groups.  To accomplish this, we delve deeply into teaching these concepts: understanding social expectations, flexible versus stuck thinking, identifying the size of the problem, making smart guesses, and sharing an imagination. We will also delve into our new assessment and treatment*-planning tool to assist with encouraging individualized group play and learning, called the Group Collaboration, Play and Problem Solving Scale (GPS), which is paired with a checklist and differentiated play activities.  The goal of this course is to offer cutting edge information and teach attendees how to use We Thinkers! Volume 2 Social Problem Solvers with fidelity. We Thinkers! Volume 2 is the second set in a two-volume series formerly called The Incredible Flexible You!. The information presented in this course builds on the five core Social Thinking concepts presented in our precursory course, “Teaching Social Thinking to Early Learners through Stories and Play-Based Activities.”

Course Content Disclosure: While this course includes information on other products (books/lessons) and the research/work of other authors, it primarily focuses on the content included in the We Thinkers! Volume 2 Social Problem Solvers curriculum guide, storybooks, and the Group Collaboration, Play and Problem Solving (GPS) assessment and treatment guide for the purpose of teaching this information with fidelity.

  • Description

  • Schedule
  • CEU

Social executive functioning is at the heart of successful play, social interaction, and learning as part of a group. In this course, we’ll teach how to move from the five basic Social Thinking lessons in We Thinkers! Volume 1 (formerly named The Incredible Flexible You!) to the more complex lessons presented in Volume 2. Attendees will engage in group-learning activities that align with the research and learn strategies to use in their classroom, clinic, or home the very next day! Explore concepts such as: the role of play and working as part of a group in the development of self-regulation, social problem solving, and executive functioning. We will also look at why a child who has difficulty with social attention will have trouble with sharing an imagination and interacting/playing with peers. We delve into teaching kids to become better social observers, and tips for deciphering the “hidden rules” and social expectations of a situation. From there we move to teaching strategies around the concepts of Flexible versus Stuck Thinking, recognizing the Size of the Problem, making Smart Guesses, and Sharing an Imagination. Learn to use our newest tool, Social Thinking’s Group Collaboration, Play and Problem Solving Scale (GPS) to understand the five different levels of play and how they relate to classroom participation and academic standards! Understand how this play scale interfaces with and expands upon other known scales such as the Westby Play Scale (2000), a gold standard in the literature of play assessment. Learn how the lessons and activities in the We Thinkers! curriculum are adapted for each level of the Social Thinking GPS, and how the information can be used in Pre-K-2 mainstream classrooms as part of social emotional learning (SEL), Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), and Response to Intervention (RTI) programs. Our goal is to teach how to use We Thinkers! Volume 2 and related treatment ideas with fidelity. The information presented on this day builds on the five core Social Thinking concepts presented in our precursory course, “Teaching Social Thinking to Early Learners through Stories and Play-Based Activities.”
 
*Treatment refers to conceptual and strategy-based frameworks for building understanding and use of social skills and social thinking.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Describe two strategies for helping individuals learn to be more flexible thinkers.
  2. Describe two strategies to help individuals learn how problem solving involves self-regulation.
  3. Design a lesson to promote a child’s development of shared, collaborative, imaginative play (SCIP). 
  4. Describe two aspects of each of the five levels of play as explained through Social Thinking’s Group Collaboration, Play and Problem Solving Scale (GPS). 
  5. Define two different strategies to provide differentiated instruction to students who have different interactive play abilities.
  6. Explain how to teach students how to read the “hidden rules” to figure out what behaviors are expected in a specific situation. 


7:30-8:30 Sign in and use "expected" social behavior to chat and find a seat. Conference begins at 8:30.
8:30-10:30 Explore Shared Collaborative Imaginative Play (SCIP): how it develops, the relation to social executive function, the connection to academics and classroom learning, and why it can be so difficult for an individual with a social learning challenge.
10:30-10:40 Break
10:40-12:00 Introduce the Social Thinking Group Collaboration, Play and Social Problem Solving Scale (GPS).
12:00-12:50 Break for Lunch

ZOOMING IN: Strategies for Concrete Learners( 5 - young adult )

Delve into the needs of our more literal learners who may have diagnoses such as ASD, ADHD, language learning or sensory integration challenges. They are often perplexed by the abstractions of the school curriculum, show marked difficulty in reading social cues, and are often aloof and less organized.  Discover how best to teach individuals based on their age and how to enhance learning in the inclusion-based classroom. Explore lessons that translate abstract social concepts into concrete ideas that can help improve social understanding over time. Participants are provided with tools to tie social treatment plans to the Common Core Standards. Audience members love the many video examples and treatment tools!
  • Description
  • What You Will Learn
  • Schedule
  • CEU

This conference day focuses on developing rule-based social learning activities that connect to the Common Core/State Standards and support the student with significant social processing challenges. We will concentrate specifically on students who are described as Challenged or Emerging Social Communicators (CSC and ESC) on our Social Thinking-Social Communication Profile. These students are more literal, more aloof, miss sarcasm, are less organized, show marked difficulty reading social contextual cues from people and the situation, comprehending reading material, expressing themselves through writing, and appear more awkward in their attempts to socially engage with their peers. The emphasis of this day will be around expanding our understanding of where to start and how to progress with these students based on their age, what is realistic to teach, and how to apply this learning in the inclusion-based classroom. Because this conference day is focused on expanding and deepening knowledge around Social Thinking strategies, it is advised that participants already have basic knowledge about Social Thinking and introductory treatment concepts. Participants should familiarize themselves with the Social Thinking-Social Communication Profile by reading the article, Social Communication Learning Styles as a Guide to Treatment and Prognosis: The Social Thinking‐Social Communication Profile™. *Treatment refers to conceptual and strategy-based frameworks for building understanding and use of social skills and social thinking.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Describe four core characteristics of Challenged and/or Emerging Social Communicators and explain how these may impact social and academic learning.
  2. Describe two tools for determining strengths and challenges of concrete-based learners.
  3. Describe the suggested sequence of three core lessons, beginning with “I have thoughts/feelings”, when planning treatment for concrete learners.
7:30-8:30 Sign in and use "expected" social skills to chat and find a seat. Conference begins at 8:30.
8:30-10:30 Explore how to teach social learning in different situations for the Challenged and Emerging Social Communicator.
10:30-10:45 Break
10:45-12:00 Understand and define the characteristics of individuals considered to be Challenged and Emerging Social Communicators and discuss realistic expectations for learning. Zoom in on tools that are helpful in describing characteristics of the CSC and ESC.
12:00-12:50 Break for Lunch
12:50-2:15 Zoom in on the Common Core Standards for select grade levels and the relationship to social and academic learning. Explore the sequence of 3 core lessons for CSC/ESCs across environments.
2:15-2:25 Break
2:25-3:45
Discuss sample lessons, goals/objectives, and measuring progress (Rubric design).

ZOOMING IN: Strategies for Individuals with Subtle but Significant Social Problems( 5 - young adult )

Explore the needs of nuance-challenged social communicators who may have diagnoses such as Asperger’s syndrome, ASD, ADHD, or social anxiety. They are often in mainstream education and struggle with the intricacies of social relationships, homework assignments, and working in peer-based groups. Discover effective strategies that encourage nuanced perspective taking and executive functioning while attending to the person’s mental health. Take with you nuance-based social learning lessons for use in both treatment plans and the mainstream classroom to help improve performance on educational standards at the state level (including the Common Core).
  • Description
  • What You Will Learn
  • Schedule
  • CEU

This conference day will explore how to work with individuals who struggle with self-regulation, social anxiety, and depression (Nuance Challenged Social Communicator). We will offer nuance-based social learning activities that connect to the Common Core Standards, and take a deeper look at how teaching lessons related to social nuance differs from teaching social “rules.” Individuals in this group may represent a range of diagnoses such as: ADHD, Asperger’s, PDD-NOS, ODD, OCD, NVLD – or be undiagnosed. Nuance-based social learners tend to have significant issues, yet they are least likely to get peer mentor support because they often appear to “blend in” with their peers, at least from an adult perspective. They are also the most likely to be bullied since they are seen by their peers as subtly different. As a result, they may have significant social anxiety and experience meltdown moments. Many have considerable challenges with Executive Functioning such as asking for help, working in peer-based groups, and doing homework. There tends to be an underlying struggle to interpret the intentions and perspective of others, but a keen ability to notice when others aren’t following the social rules. These individuals often act without a deeper understanding of the social situation or how their actions affect those around them. Because this conference day is focused on expanding and deepening knowledge around Social Thinking strategies, it is advised that participants already have basic knowledge about Social Thinking and introductory treatment concepts. Participants should familiarize themselves with the Social Thinking-Social Communication Profile by reading the article, Social Communication Learning Styles as a Guide to Treatment and Prognosis: The Social Thinking--‐Social Communication Profile™. *Treatment refers to conceptual and strategy-based frameworks for building understanding and use of social skills and social thinking.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Describe four core characteristics of those considered to be Nuance Challenged Social Communicators and how to consider those characteristics in group planning.
  2. Describe how to develop strategies for use in school and home settings, differentiating cognitive behavioral treatment from applied behavior analysis.
  3. Describe why using the terms “mild” social skills problem does not reflect the subtle, but significant social challenges of this group.
7:30-8:30 Sign in and use "expected" social skills to chat and find a seat. Conference begins at 8:30.
8:30-10:30 Define characteristics of individuals considered to be Nuance Challenged Social Communicators (Weak Interactive and Socially Anxious). Understand the executive functioning and anxiety challenges of this group.
10:30-10:40 Break
10:40-12:00 Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, treatment strategies and video to better understand symptomology.
12:00-12:50 Break for Lunch
12:50-2:15 Explore teaching concepts and strategies related to friendship, motivation, and social emotional regulation from different perspectives.
2:15-2:30 Break
2:30-3:45
Link Common Core and State Standards to teach Social Thinking. Explore a range of strategies to encourage narrative language, self-regulation and building self-monitoring.
