SOCIAL THINKING. DEEPER AND MORE MEANINGFUL.
Social Thinking focuses on helping kids figure out how to think in social situations. Kids are taught to observe and think about their own and others’ thoughts and feelings.
They also learn the connection between thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
The idea is that kids need to develop social “thinking” before they can use social “skills.” The focus on thinking can help kids understand how to interact more effectively with others.
