Frustrated parents who are tired of chaos will find concrete, actionable guidance for raising an independent, self-assured, and organized child. Dr. Korb defines the neurodevelopmental abilities that are critical for organization and shows parents how to develop their children’s organized thinking skills. He provides practical solutions to help children develop their organizational abilities and executive function. Raising an Organized Child also offers an overview of brain development as it relates to organization from infancy through the teen years and provides appropriate age-based milestones for organizational skills. Dr. Korb’s advice covers neurotypical children as well as those with ADHD, Autism, or other conditions, to help all parents bring more order to their children and their lives.

Michelle Garcia Winner, the Founder of Social Thinking, says:

"Dr. Korb and those of us at Social Thinking, share the same treatment values—rather than tell children what to do, help them learn to figure out how they can do more and more for themselves. Ultimately, this “figure it out” guidance turns into actively encouraging children to learn how to problem solve. This type of teaching lasts a lifetime. Dr. Korb’s book, Raising an Organized Child guides adults in fostering their children’s organized thinking as they grow up. This is a must-read book for parents and educators."

Key concepts explored in this series: Superflex curriculum, You Are a Social Detective, PBIS & RTI, self-regulation, social awareness.

This series is all about ensuring fidelity when using two of our key teaching materials, the award-winning You Are a Social Detective! and Superflex: A Superhero Social Thinking Curriculum. The purpose of You Are a Social Detective! is to foster social pragmatic understanding using Social Thinking Vocabulary as kids learn to be social observers, or “social detectives.” The purpose of the Superflex curriculum (featuring our superhero, Superflex) is to help students develop their social thinking to improve self-awareness, self-monitoring and, ultimately, self-regulation. Though presented in a kid-friendly format, the teaching behind the playfulness has a scope and sequence that require time and thought on the part of the professional.

We will also share tips on how to adapt these teaching materials for early learners as well as for tweens and teens who have outgrown the cartoon hero teaching approach. Additionally, we’ll explore how all this information dovetails with educational standards, social-emotional learning, Response to Intervention (RTI), and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS).

Why We Created This Series:
We created this series because we realized some professionals were not recognizing the depth, complexity, and developmental appropriateness embedded in some of our teaching materials, particularly Social Detective and Superflex. The result was that some students were becoming more dysregulated rather than learning self-regulation!

Each module in this series encourages awareness of a student’s developmental level while sharing best teaching practices for You Are a Social Detective!, Superflex: A Superhero Social Thinking Curriculum, and other related Social Thinking products. We describe how to teach these materials and elements of the broader Social Thinking Methodology with fidelity based on common questions we receive and our observations of where more clarity is needed.

Content Disclosure: This series does not teach about any other methodologies or programs aside from the Social Thinking Methodology.

*Treatment refers to using conceptual and strategy-based frameworks to help individuals improve their social thinking, skills, and competencies.

The ILAUGH Model of Social Thinking is a core (and critical) framework created and developed by Michelle Garcia Winner to help professionals and parents understand and think about the struggles faced by those with social learning challenges. The Framework is based on an extensive literature base of both seminal and current research and represents the foundation of all Social Thinking concepts. ILAUGH is an acronym for the research-based concepts that contribute to challenges in those with social learning issues across academic, community, vocational, and social contexts. The sections of the ILAUGH are not only grounded in the literature, but also represent a rich clinical base.
