Social Thinking focuses on helping individuals figure out how to think in social situations. The strategies included in this workshop help to teach individuals how to observe and think about their own and others’ thoughts and feelings. This will give pupils opportunities to develop their social thinking with targeted support from you.

A reminder: this workshop doesn’t include the whole Social Thinking curriculum. It covers only key areas which The Talking House team has found useful in practice for achieving positive outcomes in individuals’ social thinking abilities.

It is advised that the workshop is completed in 6-8 weeks, depending on your school’s time allocation. Please get in touch with The Talking House if you have any specific questions or require further support to complete this course.

We hope that you enjoy the training.
