All Livestream Courses Include Recorded Replay Access

This two-part series focuses on practical strategies to explore ways in which we can assess social competencies, also known as “soft skills,” that are foundational to building an array of social relationships, problem solving, and teamwork. The content covered within these two courses is an expanded version of what has been presented previously in our live face-to-face conference on implementing the Social Thinking® Informal Dynamic Assessment (ST–IDA) tasks to explore a range of social competencies often lagging in development in persons with social emotional learning challenges across a range of diagnoses (e.g., autism spectrum levels 1 & 2, social communication disorder, ADHD, twice exceptional, those born to toxic stressors, language learning disorders, head injuries, etc.). This fascinating series uses client/student/patient videos to guide learning about assessment tasks and how different individuals may respond. This information is helpful to all interventionists working and living with individuals with social emotional learning challenges because it shows how to get inside their minds to better understand their learning strengths and challenges. Most of the information covered in this two-part series is described in Michelle Garcia Winner's seminal book, Thinking About YOU Thinking About ME, 2nd Edition.

Teaching Social Competencies—More Than Social Skills

The foundation of our work provides interventionists (teachers, speech language pathologists, therapists, clinicians, parents) and social learners with frameworks, tools, skills and a shared language to improve social competencies—more than just social skills.

Our goal is to help people learn explicitly how to engage in social information processing; how to attend, interpret, problem solve and respond in any situation—the thinking and doing skills that will aid them in becoming increasingly successful in the social world throughout their lives.

At some point we all struggle in social situations. Engaging  in a social emotional thinking/feeling based process can be difficult at times for everyone in the social world. Our role as interventionists is to help motivate social learners to "do the work" and explore how we all share social expectations, thoughts, feelings, make mistakes and try again as we learn to navigate our way toward our social goals. The practical nature of our teaching and the concrete way we explain social concepts helps engage people in social learning not only about themselves but about others.
