4 Module Series

The ILAUGH Model: Exploring Social Thinking & the Social-Academic Connection

About This Series

Most people regularly engage in a range of social interactions, yet few know that social engagement is only part of our larger repertoire of social responses. In this series, the learner will explore how each aspect of our social thinking facilitates our ability to not only socially interact but also to engage in academic processes such as written expression, reading comprehension, narrative language, group work, classroom participation, etc. Social cognition is at the heart of our social being and it is from this point of view that the company Social Thinking has developed social-emotional learning concepts, frameworks, and strategies. The ILAUGH Model of Social Cognition is an evidence-based conceptual framework to guide professionals and parents to better understand and teach social competencies by exploring social thinking, social problem solving, and the social learning experience, including the social-academic connection. ILAUGH is an acronym to represent ideas published in research, informal assessment, and *treatment related to: Initiating communication, Listening with the eyes and brain, Abstracting and inferencing, Understanding perspective, Getting the big picture (gestalt), and Humor and human relationship. This four-module series will provide the learner with specific concepts and strategies that can be utilized in classrooms and homes. This information was developed for students with social learning challenges, such as those with ASD, ADHD, speech and language impairments, etc. However, mainstream teachers and school administrators have also found this information is germane to better understanding all students’ social-emotional learning processes.


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