Helping You Help Others
Using our evidence-based Social Thinking Methodology, which has evolved based on all we’ve learned from working with neurodiverse individuals, their families, and their teachers, we’ve emerged as a leading publisher of social emotional teaching and learning resources, referred to as Think Social Publishing, Inc., Social Thinking Publishing, Inc., or simply Social Thinking. While our methodology was originally designed to help those with social emotional learning challenges (e.g., ADHD, social communication differences, language learning differences, brain injury, autism spectrum differences levels 1 & 2, etc.), mainstream classrooms are also adopting aspects of our methodology for use with all students. We are humbled and proud to collaborate with so many neurodiverse individuals, parents, and professionals from around the world and continue to update, innovate, and create new responsive materials to better support and represent our diverse and growing communities.
We are deeply committed to providing quality, practical information that is rooted in research, built upon real-world experiences, and is responsive to the needs of the people for whom it is designed to help throughout their lives. We’re also working hard to be aware of and edit our materials to control for subconscious biases toward race, gender, and neurodiversity within our trainings and what we publish and distribute.
