Social emotional learning is a lifelong journey. At some point, we all struggle in social situations, and engaging in a social emotional thinking and feeling-based process can be difficult at times for everyone in the social world—at home, at school, at work, and within the community. That’s why the Social Thinking® Methodology offers a diverse array of research-informed resources, training, curricula, practical strategies, and visual tools for all developmental ages, from 4 – 80, and all social learners, Neurodivergent and neurotypical.


Teachers, speech-language pathologists, counselors, parents and therapists just like you have used our lessons & strategies for more than 25 years with proven results. The Social Thinking Methodology deeply explores social and emotional awareness and self-regulation; communication and relationship development; executive functioning and organization skills; anxiety management, and other social competencies to make each element visible, understandable, and doable. Its evidence-informed conceptual and teaching frameworks show interventionists, children, students, and clients how the social world operates and why through concrete, specific vocabulary and explicit, step-by-step instruction. And it provides developmentally based strategies and engaging activities to support social learners ages four through mature adulthood in moving toward improvement in their own social goals.

What is Social Thinking?

The foundation of our work provides interventionists (teachers, speech language pathologists, therapists, clinicians, parents) and social learners with frameworks, tools, skills and a shared language to improve social competencies—more than just social skills.

Our goal is to help people learn explicitly how to engage in social information processing; how to attend, interpret, problem solve and respond in any situation—the thinking and doing skills that will aid them in becoming increasingly successful in the social world throughout their lives.

At some point we all struggle in social situations. Engaging  in a social emotional thinking/feeling based process can be difficult at times for everyone in the social world. Our role as interventionists is to help motivate social learners to "do the work" and explore how we all share social expectations, thoughts, feelings, make mistakes and try again as we learn to navigate our way toward our social goals. The practical nature of our teaching and the concrete way we explain social concepts helps engage people in social learning not only about themselves but about others.
