What is the difference between teaching social skills and social thinking? This webinar will explore the answer to this question and why it is not enough to simply teach “social skills” to our students with near normal to way above normal verbal intelligence. Michelle Garcia Winner’s work in Social Thinking ® ( will be used as a framework for learning.
