Exploring the Social Thinking Approach
Expert Workshop Series
This talk is designed for professionals to help understand the development of social cognitive abilities, and the crucial milestones of social development and social communication. We will examine how social processing difficulties impact social thinking: the ability to work and learn as part of a group and accomplish specific academic tasks such as written expression and reading comprehension.
