Description

Whole Body Listening

Whole body listening (WBL), first introduced by Susanne Poulette Truesdale (in Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, July 1990, Vol. 21, 183-184) is a popular concept taught in schools to help students focus and actively listen with more than just their ears. WBL is essential for collaborative engagement, relationship development, and peer-based group work. In this webinar, Social Thinking founder Michelle Garcia Winner shares strategies and materials for teaching this critical concept beyond simply having students sit up straight and keep quiet. At the conclusion of this webinar, she recaps the five Social Thinking Vocabulary concepts covered so far in our 10 Concepts webinar series, and how they can be used in tandem across different situations.


After watching this webinar, infuse your teaching with the concept WBL 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 expected and unexpected behavior!
