Teaching Concepts for Social Self-Regulation

Self-regulation of our thoughts, emotions, anxieties, and impulses plays a central role in how we perceive and interpret others’ words, thoughts, and actions and, in turn, how ours are perceived and interpreted by others. Learning to self-regulate so that we can work, play, learn, and communicate in groups—with family, classmates, coworkers, or community--is vital to achieving our personal and group goals.

 

Social Thinking dives deep into self-regulation and how this all ties to social emotional problem solving and executive functions. Explore our broad range of online, digital, print, and free resources for teaching practical concepts, ideas, and strategies to help your children, students, and adult clients on their self-regulation journeys toward socially and emotionally problem solving and adapting their behaviors to meet their own and others’ social goals.

What’s It Mean to “Behave”?

Tips, Tools & Strategies for Teaching Students Self-Regulation

When a student’s behavior (actions or reactions) is out of sync with what the group is doing, they’re often labeled as a “behavior problem.” We’ll rethink “behavior problems” by teaching lessons that promote development of social competencies, including the power of hidden expectations and the role of Superflex, Social Fortune or Social Fate, and other curricula in the learning process, as well as other self-regulation strategies for use in the classroom, playground, and home.

Over time, our teachings can help people cultivate relationships and improve performance at school and at work. For 25 years our experts have been a guiding resource for schools, clinics, and families around the world, and we’re here for you, too. Whether you're teaching individuals with ADHD, autism spectrum (levels 1 or 2), social communication disorders, or an entire mainstream class-our strategies can help you help them.

This has been a game changer for helping general education teachers better understand our ‘awkward’ kids who just don't get it. We have been using the Social Thinking Methodology with our students, they are making friends, are more successful academically, and generally happier in all they do. Thank you! - Jennifer, Special Education Teacher
