Social Thinking by Michelle Garcia Winner

Social Thinking, developed by Michelle Garcia Winner, is a leading treatment framework for improving social thinking and social skills. Strategies are shared that can be used immediately in the classroom, home, and community, regarding:

  • Teaching social problem solving and executive functioning
  • Connecting social learning to reading comprehension, writing, and the Common Core/State Standards
  • Social Emotional Learning (SEL), Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), and Response to Intervention (RTI)
  • And much more!
