Social Thinking and Me is a powerhouse of social knowledge to help children aged 9 to 12 to transition into the more socially complex and socially demanding older grades and become stronger social problem solvers. Whether it is thinking about hidden rules and expected behavior, developing a deeper understanding of your emotions and how you influence the emotions of others or comparing the size of your reaction to the size of the problem, this award-winning two-book set breaks larger and more complicated social concepts down into smaller chunks to make it easier for adults to teach and kids to learn. It gives teachers, administrators, students, and parents a common language to more easily discuss social strengths and weaknesses – and therefore is a natural fit for the classroom (mainstream and special needs), clinic and home environment.
Who should use Social Thinking and Me?
No prior knowledge of Social Thinking is needed to use Social Thinking and Me. Whether you and your students are familiar with the Social Thinking Methodology or are just getting started, you will find this curriculum easy to use and educational! Social Thinking and Me is designed for adults (teachers, clinicians, parents, etc.) to learn from while they’re teaching the two books so that kids and adults can engage in the thinking process together. This is a curriculum to be used by all stakeholders on the child’s team to ensure that everyone is on the same page with the concepts taught and learning is carried over into all environments.
Social Thinking and Me is a multi-faceted curriculum that can be used by teachers in mainstream, inclusion or special needs classrooms, and by therapists in individual or small groups. Though the curriculum is designed for students with social learning challenges, all individuals, whether or not they have a diagnosis, can benefit from learning about Social Thinking concepts. Social Thinking Vocabulary provides concepts that align with Common Core and state standards in the U.S. and educational standards in countries around the world. Social Thinking and Me fits well into any school working to establish a culture of caring and kindness through social-emotional learning (SEL) and/or Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) as part of its over-arching school-wide goals. Social Thinking and Me was created to support your students’ academic and social learning needs.
Social Thinking and Me is an invaluable tool for parents too, either to supplement what the child is learning at school or in treatment, or by itself as a resource to strengthen a child’s social competencies. Parents who homeschool their children will find Social Thinking and Me integral to teaching children about their social selves and essential skills such as perspective-taking, self-awareness, self-regulation, understanding the “big picture”, expected/unexpected behavior – the list goes on!
