Social Thinking

This article is about social thinking and problem solving from Michelle Garcia Winner’s website. She writes about how her ILAUGH Model of Social Cognition is still relevant today (ILAUGH is an acronym for different social communication skills, including: Initiating communication, Listening with our eyes and ears, Abstracting and inferencing, Understanding perspective, Getting the main idea, and engaging in Humor and Human relationships). She outlines that using this model can help students learn to problem solve, which she believes is the cornerstone of social thinking. The website also contains downloadable templates related to social thinking and many other expressive and receptive language resources.
