If you’ve ever wanted to make a case for why students with solid language and learning skills may need to be explicitly taught social competencies, this is the book for you. It details how the Social Thinking methodology supports a child’s ability to learn in a group, pay attention, be considerate, regulate behaviour – and even improve academic performance. It also tackles popular questions such as how the Social Thinking Methodology integrates the latest research and differs from a behavioural skills-based approach. Written by Social Thinking’s founder this unique resource drives home the importance of social learning to success academically, professionally and across life.
Buying Tip: If you’ve always known or suspected that some kids have to be “explicitly” taught the social cognition skills other kids learn “intuitively”, this book will bring it all together for you. A must read for any parent or professional.
