Our Methodology

Our teachings help people understand themselves and others to better navigate the social world, foster relationships, and improve their performance at school, at home, and at work. Our unique tools break down complex social concepts (like perspective taking) into understandable and doable parts that can be applied in any setting. For over 20 years our experts have been a guiding resource for schools, clinics, and families around the world, and our teachings continually evolve based on the latest research and clinical insights. Whether you're helping individuals with ADHD, autism spectrum levels 1 or 2, social communication disorders, or an entire class of typically-developing students—our strategies can help you help them.
