Think Social

Michelle Garcia Winner

This book builds on the basic philosophy offered in THINKING ABOUT YOU THINKING ABOUT ME.

Created at the request of educators, therapists and parents to learn more about how to teach students with weak social cognition and related social skills (Asperger’s Syndrome, PDD-NOS, High Functioning Autism, ADHD, NLD, Hyperlexia) and those with murky social abilities. Many of the lessons Michelle weaves into her workshops are written in detail in this book, and there are many more the audiences have never heard!

Thinking about You, Thinking about Me

Michelle Garcia Winner

Students with social cognitive learning deficits face enormous challenges not only in their day-to-day relations with the world around them, but also...

in the fact that few professionals, educational or medical, understand the core of these student’s deficits. One fundamental deficit relates to perspective taking – the ability of one person to consider the point of view and motives of another. Although this sounds like a simple process, it is in fact a hugely complex task that is crucial to successful interpersonal relations, and is a skill that anyone with a social cognition disability will struggle with. This book addresses the different ways this problem can present itself, the current thinking on how to approach the problem and a wealth of exercises and activities that can immediately be applied to the student. Illustrated with clear diagrams and tables, and with photocopiable handouts, this accessible text will be invaluable for anyone assessing, living with or teaching children and adults with this most abstract of all learning disabilities
