Michelle Garcia Winner is a speech therapist from the U.S. who has been working on social thinking for the last ten years. She has presented her approach a number of times in Vancouver. Her approach has been adopted by many teachers, therapists and parents to teach their children or themselves to have more successful interactions with others.
This week in Social Learning we are exploring understanding different perspective and will begin a process called Social Behavior Mapping. You can find this week's lesson under the Social Thinking tab.
The Mapping process can be used both at home and school to explain how and why others feel when they encounter "unexpected behaviours". Listen to Michelle explain the Social Behaviour Mapping process in the videos below.
