  • Being around others requires us to be social thinkers. We use our social skills to co-exist when we’re in a group, even when we’re not interacting with the people around us. To use our social skills well simply means each of us is sharing space effectively, which involves being able to take the perspective of others. This user-friendly, helpful poster lays out the four steps of perspective taking and Social Thinking that keep us working together as a group, whether at home, at school, or in the community.

  • Students enjoy squeezing the small, blue foam brains, and the brains encourage them to think more flexibly and abstractly about the size of their problems and the choices they are making.
  • An important life skill is learning how to cope when you get bored while working or being in a group. Our updated “Coping with Boring Moments” poster infuses humour into explicit, concrete information to help individuals learn more about the expected and unexpected behaviours related to boredom. With the support of the poster, teachers can engage in more-explicit real-life discussions about the social challenges students experience when they get bored and how to deal with them.

  • Reading comprehension is more than being able to read words and sentences... How many parents and teachers have experienced the child who can read, often at an early age, but can't seem to grasp the meaning behind a sentence, or struggles to interpret story lines or the characters' perspectives or emotions? Author Audra Jensen brilliantly makes the connections! Information on Purchase Orders here.  Postage information here.

  • 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 behavior, and formulate narrative language to discuss social interactions.

  • The Should I or Shouldn’t I? What Would Others Think? game encourages players to think about their own behaviour choices and then compare how their perceptions match (or don’t) those of the other players. It revolves around the idea of perspective taking - being able to think about others, their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours, and how this interrelationship plays out in social situations. The game is based on the Social Thinking concepts and vocabulary introduced by Michelle Garcia Winner and outlined in her many books and articles on the topic.
