Welcome to our latest newsletter spotlight, where we shine a light on individuals making a difference in the field! This month, we’re featuring Michelle Garcia Winner, the founder of Social Thinking and a leading expert in the field of social cognition.
If you’re not familiar with Social Thinking, it’s a framework developed by Michelle Garcia Winner that helps individuals with social communication and interaction difficulties understand and improve their social skills. The approach focuses on helping individuals with autism and related conditions develop the “hidden curriculum” – the unwritten social rules that most of us learn naturally, but that can be challenging for individuals with social cognitive differences.
Michelle Garcia Winner has written numerous books on the topic of Social Thinking, including “Thinking About You Thinking About Me,” “The Zones of Regulation,” and “Just Right Teaching Strategies.” These books offer practical strategies and resources for parents, educators, and professionals working with individuals with social cognitive differences.
If you want to learn more about Social Thinking and how it can help individuals with autism and related conditions, you can visit the Social Thinking website (www.socialthinking.com). The website features a wealth of resources, including articles, webinars, and training opportunities. You can also follow Social Thinking on social media for the latest updates and insights.
We hope this spotlight on Michelle Garcia Winner and Social Thinking has been helpful and informative. If you have any questions or would like to learn more, be sure to visit the Social Thinking website and check out some of Michelle’s books. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of individuals with social cognitive differences.
