The Nuts and Bolts of Starting Social Thinking Programs:
Practical Strategies for Assessment and LIFE

September 16th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Presenter - Michelle Garcia Winner
Attendance at "Understanding Social Thinking Across the Home and School Day" is required to fully appreciate the information presented on this day. This workshop is designed for parents and professionals to gain more specific knowledge about assessing and teaching our students at home and at school. On this day the audience will be required to work in small group activities and engage in active dialogue about assessment and treatment techniques that will be specifically described for use in the classroom, home and in the therapy room.
Given that all people who live and work with these students are constantly engaged in their own "diagnostic treatment", this workshop will help parents and professionals to more fully understand their child's range of social thinking strengths and weaknesses. Information reviewed in this assessment process will directly help with the planning of functional treatment plans. This information is useful not only for the speech language pathologist but also the paraprofessional, classroom teacher, etc.

Participants will learn more specifically about how to develop a "ME Binder" to teach a student about his own IEP; Social Behavior Mapping, a very user friendly strategy to help explain to students why behavioral expectations exist in all places but vary from activity to activity and then strategies will be reviewed for running social thinking groups that participants can practice in small group experiences.

This workshop has helped to illuminate how to break down abstract concepts into more concretely defined teachable moments.


Strategies for Organization: Preparing for Homework and the Real World April 9th 2008
Presenter - Michelle Garcia Winner
The information in this workshop is applicable to ALL students, not just those with learning disabilities.The primary focus of this workshop is on laying out 10 steps of organization our students need to engage in to build successful study systems. Spanning topics such as developing motivational skills to understanding time estimation, Michelle attempts to shed new light on how to address a range of issues by providing clear teaching strategies.
This workshop also introduces concepts to better understand what type of organizational problems our students have (static versus dynamic), while encouraging us to consider whether our own teaching approach is product or process oriented.
This workshop is appropriate for parents, regular education teachers, special education teachers, SLP's, OT's, paraprofessionals, administrators and anyone else who helps all students to learn to cope in the real world.
