Social Thinking vs Social Skills

on March 24, 2013

I wanted to share this informative video with all of you out there. It is IEP review time so to all the parents who follow this blog, I wanted you to have an idea of what I am talking about when I refer to “social thinking”.  Michelle Garcia Winner, who coined the phrase “social thinking” defines it as “what we do when we interact with people:  we think about them.  And how we think about them affects how we behave, which in turn affects how others respond to us, which affects our own emotions”.

There are four social thinking videos available on YouTube.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
