what is social thinking?
He is interrupting me every time I give directions or try to make a point.
Their volume is so loud!
She constantly touches her peers and doesn’t seem to be aware of how it is bothering them.
They talk too much.
His friends don’t want to include him in their games.
Her teachers constantly seem to get annoyed at her because she overreacts to problems.
The above statements are just some of the statements we hear from parents of children ages 4-15 who are having difficulties with social skills. For some kids, tasks that involve other people can be difficult. Things like forging friendships, dealing with conflict and engaging in conversation do not come naturally.
We specialize in helping people develop skills to be more comfortable socially.
We practice strategies to help communicators in many settings and situation. Some key social thinking questions are:
- What to do when we frustrate friends?
- What is the impact of our words on others?
- Why do other’s points of view matter?
- How to can I become a flexible thinker?
- How can I adjust to a new routine?
- Why we can’t always get our way?
Throughout the year we run a range of social thinking outings for different age groups. For more information, please visit our Social Thinking Opportunities page or if you are ready to sign up go to our Event Info page.
