    by:  Elizabeth Sautter Ages: 4-10 Stock available in the new year.  Email us and we will notify you when copies arrive info@socialmind.com.au Children need consistent exposure to social examples, as well as explanations and practice throughout the day to build social and emotional competence. Make Social Learning Stick! provides a user-friendly structure and fun and easy activities that help parents and professionals do just that. Over 185 activities demonstrate numerous ways to embrace teachable moments throughout daily routines. Events like getting ready for school, preparing dinner, going to the doctor, and celebrating Thanksgiving become opportunities for teaching and reinforcing expected social behaviour. By making a "social learning diet" part of everyday life, kids develop verbal and nonverbal language, listening skills, understanding of hidden rules, perspective taking, emotional regulation and more.
  • One of the greatest challenges in teaching social thinking is finding interesting, imaginative, and enjoyable ways for students of all ages to study complex social situations. Movie Time Social Learning takes an activity many students already love—watching movies—and uses it as a springboard to study the intricacies of social interaction, the depth and range of emotions we experience in our lives, and the social expression that drives our interactions. By hitting the pause button, we freeze social situations and give students the all-so-valuable extra time to read context, interpret thoughts, feelings and plans, make predictions about social behaviour, and formulate narrative language to discuss social interactions.

  • Problems are a part of life. When we’re around others, it’s expected that the size of our reaction matches the size of the problem. When we have big reactions to little problems, people may feel uncomfortable. We may even be creating more problems for ourselves! The Size of My Problem poster can be used on the spot to help individuals figure out the size of a problem, their reaction size, and then visually see the relationship between them. Perfect for home or classroom/clinic. Dry-erase surface for use again and again. Scroll down for more details about The Size of my Problem...
  • Teaching individuals to be better social thinkers requires us to start our teaching at the foundation level and build up from there.
