  • by Michelle Garcia Winner for ages 8-18 Being around others requires us to be social thinkers. We use our social skills to co-exist when we’re in a group, even when we’re not interacting with the people around us. To use our social skills well simply means each of us is sharing space effectively, which involves being able to take the perspective of others. This user-friendly, helpful poster lays out the four steps of perspective taking and Social Thinking that keep us working together as a group, whether at home, at school, or in the community. Buying Tip:  This poster clearly explains everyone's role in a group, which is to be mindful of the people around us and that we have responsibility towards those people.  Great for classrooms, clinics and at home.

  • by Michelle Garcia Winner and Pamela Crooke for ages 18+ Written to help all adults but especially useful for those with subtle but significant social learning challenges.  This book helps adults read the hidden rules of the social world. The book includes practical strategies that can be used in both the workplace and all areas of life to better understand and respond to others and social situations. Buying Tip: This book is a must read for managers who are sent to courses titled "managing difficult employees" as much as it is a must read for employees who are struggling to "fit in" at work and perhaps get sent to such courses.  The social mind needs to be seen from both perspectives, so that we treat people with empathy and dignity and better understand the "social" dimension of the workplace.  We recommend this book to all adults who find relationships challenging, and don't we all experience that from time to time? This book will help you understand your role in your family and in your significant relationship as much as it helps you understand how to navigate the social dimension of the workplace.  This book will also help managers understand the struggles faced by many employees, and in so doing, help them be better "people" managers. This book is our recommended read for all adults.  Information on Purchase Orders here.  Postage information here. All prices in Australian Dollars.

    for ages 4 - 12 Through this book children learn to identify pictures of emotions. Sentences such as, "I feel ________ when I do a good job," allow the students to label their feelings. (There are no "correct" answers.) Open-ended questions at the back of the book allow teachers, therapists, parents or children to make up their own sentences. Even if a student is non-verbal or doesn't speak English, once they can identify the pictures, you can read the sentence and have them give you or point to the picture that labels their emotion. Another fun activity and a means of assessing a students emotions is to put the pictures face down and have students pick a picture. Ask them to give you an example of what might make them feel that way. A student picks a card that says, "excited", ask the student to tell you something that would make them feel excited. Buying Tip: This is an excellent book for kids to learn how to match, identify and label specific emotions. Of particular value are the sections that have a card with a comment “I feel …”.  This book is a recommended resource to use together with The Zones of Regulation. I Have Feelings Too is the result of requests from users of the highly-regarded, “How Do I Feel?” The difference being “I Have Feelings, Too!” uses pictures and sentences appropriate for older kids (teens and adults but also useful as an extension exercise for younger kids).

  • by Joan Green for ages 4 – 12 This book teaches students to match, identify, label and sequence numbers 1-12. There are 4 picture pages and 12 sentence pages from which students learn to read number words one through twelve and simple nouns (ex: six suns). Quantity concepts are taught by matching number to picture and picture to number. (ex: Have the student put the number "2" card on the picture that has 2 "shoes" or the student picks a picture card, counts the items and places it on the appropriate number card.) Simple math activities can also be performed. (eg: Using the picture cards: 2 shoes + 3 pigs= ? Answer: the number card 5) or (ex. Using the number cards: 3 + 4=? Answer: the student finds the picture card of 7 balloons) Click on the picture icon above to enlarge for better viewing. Information on Purchase Orders here.  Postage information here.
