Social Thinking, Social Learning & Becoming a Social Detective

Social Thinking featuring founder.jpg

Workshop Description


Our social skills are not a set of memorized behaviors, instead they are the result of a social information gathering process. For students with diagnoses such as ASD and ADHD, who also have solid to high level language skills and solid to high level academic abilities, teaching them how to think socially is a critical step in helping them to figure out how to adapt their social responses based on the time, place and person(s).

This workshop will explore Social Thinking’s Social Competency Model to highlight four key elements necessary for improving one’s social learning and related social responses: attend, interpret, problem solve and respond. With this information as our backdrop, Social Thinking Vocabulary and related strategies will be taught to encourage younger students to become social detectives and older students to become social spies. By encouraging the growth of student’s social self-awareness, they also learn to improve social self-regulation. For example, learning to avoid blurting out information at home or at school. All information reviewed in this session can be used in inclusive settings. The Social Thinking Methodology has a large range of teaching frameworks and strategies for students of all ages, including adults. This workshop is intended as an introductory session.


  1. The participant will explain the four-part process when teaching social competencies.

  2. The participant will describe why we teach students to become aware of social expectations prior to having them learn to adapt their own behavior.

  3. The participant will explain why telling a student to “stop blurting” likely won’t lead to generalized decreases in that behavior.

Target Audience: Zonal Directors, Cluster Superintendents, School Leaders, Heads of Department, Teacher Leaders, Instructional Coaches, Key Personnel, Teachers (K-12)
