Social Thinking: Exploring Strategies to Build Social Competencies
March 31, 2022 | 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Speaker: Nancy Clements, MA, CCC-SLP, Director of Social Thinking Boston®
This workshop will provide an overview of The Social Thinking Methodology by addressing the questions: How does the social world work, and how can we help our students better navigate to regulate within it? We will explore how this methodology fosters the development of social competencies to help people understand themselves and others to better navigate the social world, foster relationships, and improve their performance at school, at home, and at work.
