Social Thinking Boston® Clinical Therapy


  • Students will explore cutting edge approaches to enhance the development of social skills both in the classroom and in social settings
  • Sessions are individualized to the participant’s needs and creatively taught using the Social Thinking concepts developed by Michelle Garcia Winner
  • Children and adults will practice social thinking and related skills in small groups or an individual therapy environment that is supportive and thought-provoking
  • Each weekly session is usually 60 minutes
  • There is a strong parent component for school age students. Parents receive a 10 minute “parent talk” time at the end of each session, run by the coach working with their child. This is time when parents learn about the skills and strategies taught to their child and how this information can be carried over at home, school, and in the community
