Incluye áreas de enfoque tales como los conceptos de la Inteligencia Social, la Inteligenica Escolar, Pensar con los Ojos, y cómo mantener la mente y el cuerpo en participación con los demás.

What People are Saying
Allison Olson - Parent to 7 Year Old Matthew"I am so impressed by how this book presents complex social situations for my son and breaks them down into terms that are entertaining, clear, and relevant. I found it difficult in the past to talk about these ideas in a way that he could understand. While reading it together, not only did he understand what was being conveyed, it was thought provoking for him as well. We had a wonderful conversation after completing it. I believe this book will be a useful tool for us while my son is learning how he can communicate with the world and how the world will receive that communication. It is a wonderful addition to our collection. Thank you!”
Matthew Olson - 7 Year Old Son of Allison"Please read this book because that means you will be a Social Thinker! It will teach you what is expected and unexpected! I hope you enjoy this book and have fun!”
Deborah Pugh - Parent, Director Research & Training at Autism Community Training"Finally, a book that appeals to kids with ASD by using cartoons to convey the subtleties of expected and unexpected social behaviors. Even better is that there are enough examples to allow kids to grasp the core concepts of Social Thinking®. As my teenage son Adam explains it, ‘The best part about this book is finding out how to make other people happy.’”
Stephanie Fugita - Counselor"The students were excited by the idea of being a detective looking for clues. They responded well to the visuals depicting how to do what is expected to get others to have ‘good thoughts’ about them. It clearly illustrated abstract concepts for use with our kids who tend to be more concrete thinkers. This is a great introduction to Michelle Garcia Winner’s Social Thinking® concepts or for use in conjunction with her other informative books and curriculum.”
