What is Social Thinking?
The foundation of Social Thinking’s work is to provide interventionists (Teachers, Speech & Language Therapists, Clinicians & Parents) and social learners with frameworks, tools, skills and a shared language to improve social competencies—more than just social skills. Their goal is to help people learn explicitly how to engage in social information processing; how to attend, interpret, problem solve and respond in any situation – the thinking and doing skills that will aid them in becoming increasingly successful in the social world throughout their lives.
