Thinking About You Thinking About Me: Philosophy And Strategies To Further Develop Perspective Taking And Communicative Abilities For Persons With ... Autism, Hyperlexia, ADHD, PDD-NOS, NVLD

The Thinking about YOU Thinking about ME book explores the critical nature of perspective taking (Theory of Mind) in our day-to-day interactions and its importance in the classroom setting. It describes how the perspective taking process works and offers a myriad of therapeutic activities for teachers/therapists to utilize with children and adults. Michelle Garcia Winner explains how professionals can use informal measures (since no standardized measures are available) to assess the abstract skill and to determine which students will benefit from this type of treatment. Included are strategies that help students understand their own treatment programs (IEPs) and behavior plans. The book covers contents presented in her workshops, "Nuts and Bolts of Starting Social Thinking Programs", and " Thinking about YOU Thinking about ME".

According to the author, social cognitive learning disability is the most abstract of all learning disabilities, making it difficult for professionals to assess through standardized measures. Students with social cognitive deficits may be diagnosed with disorders ranging from Asperger Syndrome (AS) to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). In this guide, the author focuses on the student's ability to understand the perspective of others, which is critical for establishing successful interpersonal relationships. This handbook contains numerous therapeutic activities to help students understand and develop perspective-taking skills, and it also describes the impact of language and behavior on social thinking. The book offers strategies to help students and teachers understand the Individualized Education Program (IEP), and it also provides sample IEP goals and benchmarks.

As a teacher with students on the Autism Spectrum I found this book to be most helpful when teaching social skills class. The strategies are doable, and easy to implement.

Excellent resource for those struggling with social issues and the myriad complications social settings introduce.
