Implementing Social Thinking Concepts & Vocabulary
This conference day is all about Social Thinking Vocabulary and concepts! Social Thinking teaches students to communicate through concepts such as "working as part of a group," the "three parts of play," "abstracting and inferencing information" and "sharing an imagination." We will examine clinical examples that highlight how to make these abstract concepts more concrete and teachable. The Social Thinking Vocabulary is the backbone of Social Thinking teaching programs.
Participants will work in groups to learn how to use Social Thinking concepts across settings, creating one or two of their own lesson plans. We explore how to make lessons applicable across a variety of environments, and focus on enabling students to apply the lessons into the rest of their lives. This conference day offers an advanced exploration of Social Thinking – and is particularly suited for those who have read Social Thinking books, attended our workshops or are otherwise familiar with Social Thinking concepts.
