Using concrete social emotional vocabulary and frameworks, we teach strategies for social learners to navigate (to regulate) in the social world. In this second half of this series, learn additional Social Thinking Vocabulary to make abstract social concepts more concrete. We describe treatment* examples for guiding children, students or clients to build social competencies in conversations, executive functions, self-awareness, self-regulation, perspective taking, and flexible thinking.
*Treatment refers to using conceptual and strategy-based frameworks to help individuals improve their social competencies.

In this first part of a two-part series we delve into the social mind and how it functions with neurotypically developing people within the complex social world to better understand goals of assessment. Examine trends in how different types of social emotional learners process and respond to socially based information. Explore processes for engaging students in Social Thinking® Informal Dynamic Assessment (ST–IDA) tasks to guide understanding of individuals’ social emotional learning strengths and weaknesses.

Learn how to implement Project ImPACT a parent mediated intervention for children with social communication challenges.
Project ImPACT is recognized as one of the most effective coaching programs for parents of young children (up to age 6) with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other social communication challenges. Research on parent mediated intervention for children with autism spectrum disorder and related social communication challenges shows that it is an effective treatment approach that leads to improvements for the child and family. Project ImPACT targets core skills in four areas of social communication: Social engagement, communication and language, imitation, and play. It is a naturalistic developmental behavioral intervention, or NDBI, that uses evidence-based intervention strategies to promote the child’s social communication. NDBI is a newer class of interventions that has been informed by the fields of developmental and communication sciences and applied behavior analysis, or ABA.
