People frequently ask how our products can be used together for a specific age group to teach and motivate kids to improve their social competencies in a fun and engaging manner. In Social Thinking’s first ever webinar, Michelle Garcia Winner will discuss the products Social Thinking has created for students in grades 3-5 (8-11 year olds) as well as share teaching tips and strategies related to the use of the following materials: You are a Social Detective!, the SuperflexTM Curriculum, Social Thinking and Me, and the game Should I or Shouldn’t I?. Michelle will present for the first 30 minutes, and in the last 30 minutes she will answer the questions you submit live. Learn information you won't get at a conference!
