The Guidebook is available in print or as a digital download and is designed to help children in upper elementary and middle school transition into the more socially complex and socially demanding older grades and become stronger social problem solvers. Kids are introduced to Social Thinking Vocabulary and concepts in different social contexts. Concepts are explained using age-relevant social situations, cool illustrated pictures, and lots of group discussions that can aid each student on their journey to becoming a better social thinker. The Social Thinking and Me Kids’ Guidebook is also part of a two-book set. The set is only available in print, and includes the guidebook plus 54 fun and instructive "thinksheets” that align with chapter topics in the guidebook.
This award-winning book unpacks the power of our social cognition. It’s written for both neurotypcial and Neurodivergent adult readers to better understand the powerful ways in which we “read” not only what people mean by what they say, but also how others perceive how we emotionally relate. The title reflects a problem experienced by so many clients who report their “good intentions” were met with disappointing outcomes as they worked towards their social goals. This book is also a good primer for neurotypical employers/employees or HR departments to read about the experiences and perspectives of Neurodivergent coworkers, and perhaps develop empathy for the complexity of the bi-directional social learning process. Provides practical strategies for how to effectively work in a group, understand the hidden rules of the social world—including workplace etiquette and politics—and build relationships.
