How to Solve Your Child’s Social Problems
Announcing CSLOT’s Social Thinking Groups for summer! These groups are based on Michelle Garcia Winner’s Social Thinking Curriculum. Groups will meet for one hour per week for 9 weeks during the summer.
Preschool – 2nd Grade – The Incredible Flexible You!™
The Incredible Flexible You™ curriculum is designed to help young learners with average to way above average language and learning ability develop the skills they need to be flexible social thinkers and social problem solvers. Because Social Thinking is a thought-based approach, explicitly taught through describing and demonstrating concrete concepts through structured play, it is best utilized with students who have the capacity to learn through language. Concepts discussed include Thinking Thoughts and Feeling Feelings, The Group Plan, Thinking With Your Eyes, Body in the Group, and Whole Body Listening,
3rd Grade – 8th Grade – Superflex®
Superflex ®: A Superhero Social Thinking Curriculum provides educators, parents and therapists fun and motivating ways to teach students with social and communication difficulties (undiagnosed or diagnosed, such as Asperger Syndrome, ADHD, high-functioning autism or similar). The three part cognitive behavioral curriculum helps students to develop further awareness of their own thinking and social behaviors and learn strategies to help them develop better self-regulation across a range of these behaviors. The students learn how each of them have Superflexible capacities in their brains that can take on this Team of Unthinkables (Rock Brain, Topic Twister Meister, Mean Jean and Glassman to name a few), each embodied in a cartoon character as a different behavior and challenge, accompanied by specific strategies to help subdue them.
If Social Thinking sounds like it would help your child, contact us to join a group.
Looking forward to a great Social Thinking Summer!
