Multiple award-winning We Thinkers! is our premier social emotional learning series for helping social learners ages 4–7 develop foundational social competencies and essential life skills through stories, lessons, and play activities. These engaging curricula help kids better understand themselves and others, develop self-awareness, and strengthen perspective taking and social problem solving. This learning supports students’ social emotional learning, relationship building, classroom learning, and academic performance. Practice-proven and evidence-based, these materials are designed for both neurotypically developing children and those with social learning differences and/or challenges.
The series includes both of our award-winning volumes, We Thinkers! Volume 1 Social Explorers, We Thinkers! Volume 2: Social Problem Solvers, and their 10 corresponding storybooks that introduce our Core Social Thinking® Vocabulary and concepts, taught explicitly through two different curricula and detailed unit-by-unit lessons. Also, within the series is the groundbreaking We Thinkers! GPS, which includes our Group Collaboration, Play and Problem Solving Scale (GPS), observation and scoring tools, and related differentiated play activities.
We Thinkers! Series is loved worldwide by kids, parents, and professionals alike—and learning improves when these tools can be shared across environments by teachers, clinicians, and parents.
