Social Thinking and Me is a powerhouse of social knowledge to help children in upper elementary and middle school 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 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! Teaching materials included on USB for easy printing.
