The teachings within the Social Thinking Methodology have been evolving for over twenty years, and a number of books have been written in the process to teach the methodology. Michelle Garcia Winner, the founder of Social Thinking and Dr. Pamela Crooke, Social Thinking’s Chief Officer of Research and Clinical Services will host this webinar to explain the Social Thinking books that are designed for interventionists* to better understand multi-faceted social cognitive processes as well as learn related assessment and treatment frameworks and strategies. 
In this webinar, Michelle will review the four “core” books in the Social Thinking Methodology (see list below). Each book teaches from a unique viewpoint about how we interpret and respond to social information, and how our social competencies affect our academic performance related to educational standards (e.g. reading comprehension of literature, written expression, narrative language, etc.) all the while demonstrating how Social Thinking is an evidence-based practice. True to all our webinars, Michelle will also provide the latest teachings in the Social Thinking Methodology that extends beyond the pages of the books.

The four core Social Thinking products that are the focus of this webinar:

  • - Inside Out: What Makes a Person with Social Cognitive Deficits Tick?
  • - Thinking About You Thinking About Me 2nd Edition
  • - Think Social! A Social Thinking Curriculum for School-Age Students
  • - Why Teach Social Thinking®? Questioning Our Assumptions About What It Means to Learn Social Skills   

*Interventionist: any person who helps teach individuals with social learning needs. This includes but is not limited to family members and caretakers as well as a range of professionals such as educators, counselors, psychologists, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, behaviorists, etc.
