Detailed Description

Who should attend

Using the 4 Steps of Communication and the Social Thinking–Social Competency Model as a backdrop, attendees will learn about the role of social attention, interpretation, problem solving, and social responses as part of navigating the social world. We explore how to teach, and learn the evidence base for, core treatment* frameworks and a handful of unique and practical strategies based on the Social Thinking Vocabulary. Attendees will learn how one’s social attention to the situation and people in the situation can encourage understanding of the expected behaviors for that social context. We also describe ways to teach interpreting and responding by making smart guesses to discover hidden social rules and the relationship to social emotional learning.


Attendees will explore specific treatment strategies for how our bodies establish physical presence in a group (body in the group) and how we think with our eyes to gain awareness of the social environment, whether interacting or simply sharing space. Throughout the course, we emphasize how to make abstract concepts more concrete through clinical examples.


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


Who Should Attend

The Social Thinking Methodology is used by a wide variety of professionals; including speech-language pathologists, special and general education teachers, social workers, counselors, clinical and school psychologists, occupational therapists, behavior specialists, and school administrators to name a few. It’s also used by family members and caregivers across settings.
