The Social Mind® provides unique training opportunities for professionals, paraprofessionals, parents and carers, working with kids and adults experiencing social learning challenges. We also distribute a specialised range of educational resources that we consider to be of the highest quality, and are also sensitive to the aspirations of the communities within which we work.
The Social Mind embraces neurodiversity and acknowledges the unique skills, identity and aspirations of every child and adult accessing our resources. We encourage users of our resources to work cooperatively with clients, to strengthen their unique sense of identity, and further develop their capacity to exercise agency in their lives.
We hope that our business provides our clients with the tools and strategies they need to achieve their social goals, whatever they may be, and strengthen their relationships. We’d love nothing more than those who sometimes struggle to fit in, will be seen and valued by their community simply for who they are.
The Social Mind® is in its 13th year of trading with a few name changes along the way (Social Thinking Australia/Social Inclusion Australia), reflecting the steady growth and development of the business. For over a decade now we have established a reputation for delivering quality service and supplying educational resources that help to change lives.
