Expected and Unexpected Behavior

The next five webinars in our 10-webinar series build on the concepts of the previous five, diving into more complex concepts that actively develop socially based executive functioning.

Social expectations become more complex with age. Join Michelle Garcia Winner to explore the hidden expectations that surround us whether we are 4 years old or 40! Learn the dos and don’ts for using our popular terms “expected behavior” and “unexpected behavior” to best support your students, clients, and children. Help them figure out what’s expected by building awareness of situations, people, and social context—and identifying what they expect from others. Discover which Social Thinking materials will help you teach this powerful concept across different age groups—plus get a limited-time coupon for 10% off those items!

After watching this webinar, infuse your teaching with the concept over the next month to help your students understand it deeply and meaningfully (avoid memorization). Then, tune in to the next webinar to learn how to build on this concept with best practices for teaching flexible and stuck thinking!

The 10 Concepts Webinar Series

This webinar is part of a series that shares best practices for teaching 10 core Social Thinking concepts over 10 months. Strengthen your students’ social-emotional learning by infusing your teaching with an additional concept each month over the course of the school year. We recommend learning about (and teaching) the concepts in order as they build on one another! If a date below has already passed, the webinar recording is available here for you to watch!
