Michelle Garcia Winner, MA, CCC-SLP, the founder of Social Thinking, opened her first clinic, The Center for Social Thinking, in 1998 to provide services for people with social learning challenges. Her common-sense teaching approach (now called the Social Thinking Methodology) helped many of her clients develop social competencies in a way no other program had done before – and word spread. Her client base grew quickly and so did the demand for information, training, and products to help serve people worldwide.
The Social Thinking Methodology’s strategies, concepts, and materials are designed to help individuals develop social competencies to better understand themselves and others, foster self-regulation and relationships, and make larger meaning of the social world.
