OUR PLAN

What is socialization?

The difference between teaching social thinking and teaching social skills.

The 3 theories of social thinking.

What do we teach.


“She’s very social.”

What are some of the things she does…..

  • - Greet people (without being told)

  • Look at the person they’re speaking to (think with the eyes;listening with whole body)

  • Initiate and maintain a conversation (referencing the listener)

  • Know how to act in different situations

  • (expected/unexpected behavior)

  • Understand and use nonverbal language (body language,

  • gestures, facial expression, tone of voice)

  • ‘Fit in’ (following the hidden rules)

  • Know how close to stand to someone (physical presence)


Socialization can also be thought as

Social Thinking

Social thinking refers to the process of thinking about your own thoughts and the thoughts of others (perspective taking).

Social thinking is figuring out how to make other people think the way you want them to think about you and knowing that you can change the way people think about you.


What is the difference between social thinking

and social skills?

We view social skills as a scripted set of behaviors. These are behaviors that are learned in a specific setting or context and are:

often over generalized to all situations

or

b) only used in the learned context.

Social thinking teaches the how and why behind the skills so that students can understand and appropriately generalize the skills. Students are taught to be more aware of the world around them and how their behavior impacts both others and themselves.


What do we do when we think socially?

We think with our eyes – we look at the people around us

and notice the following: what is their facial expression, what is their body language telling us, are they alone or with someone, you consider the setting in order to figure out what they’re thinking.

We use of our social memory – do we know the people, what do we remember about them, what behaviors/action/etc do we expect, what usually happens in this situation/context

We take other people’s perspective – we think about what they might be thinking, we think about their beliefs, motives and intentions and what they might want to talk about.

For most of us this is intuitive and happens in a

split second – before we are even aware of it!


Social thinking strategies are used

  • when sharing space with others

  • to interpret and understand movies, TV

  • shows, literature

  • to understand academic subjects such as

  • social studies and language arts

  • when working in groups with peers

  • to understand people’s motives and

  • intentions


The Puzzle of Social Thinking

  • Central Coherence Theory

  • Executive Function Theory

Organization,

Planning and

Impulse Control

Getting the

Whole Picture



OUR ACTIONS CAUSE REACTIONS

You can change how I feel

Our behaviors impact on the people around us and cause them to react based on how they feel.

Explain that when you do what’s expected people feel comfortable with you and want to be with you. Which makes you feel good about yourself.

When you do something that’s unexpected, people feel uncomfortable and don’t want to be with you. This does not make you feel good about yourself!

Concept: Emotion Thermometer

How what you do makes someone else feel:

1 – 2 : You can do something once or twice and people will still be happy calm or neutral

3 – 4 : When you do something 3 or 4 times people become irritated and frustrated.

5 – 6 : When you do something 5 – 6 times people become annoyed.

7 – 8 : When you do something 7 or 8 times people become upset.

9 – 10: When you do something 9 or 10 times you can expect someone to become angry. At this point Anything can now tip the other person into anger – It’s the straw the broke the camel’s back!
