Description

What’s the difference between teaching social skills and social thinking? Author Ryan Hendrix will answer this question and explore why it is not enough to simply teach “social skills” to our students with social learning challenges. We will use Social Thinking’s ILAUGH model to explore core challenges and how the behavior we see on the surface has its roots in deeper challenges with both input and output. Information presented is drawn from The Social Thinking® methodology (www.socialthinking.com) and based on the work of Michelle Garcia Winner.

Ryan Hendrix is a Social Cognitive Therapist at Social Thinking Stevens Creek in San Jose and a private therapist in San Francisco. She trained and works directly with Michelle Garcia Winner and Dr. Pamela Crooke. Her diverse caseload experience includes preschool-age children through young adults with varying levels of social cognitive learning challenges. Ryan, along with coauthors Kari Zweber Palmer, Nancy Tarshis, and Michelle Garcia Winner, created the Incredible Flexible You, a Social Thinking curriculum for the preschool and early elementary years, published by Social Thinking Publishing.
