Each block represents a fundamental capacity that is part of the foundation of social learning for all early learners. Each layer represents capacities that are interrelated and interdependent as well as emerging in a similar developmental time frame. One synergistic layer builds upon the next resulting in a fully functional and flexible, kindergarten-ready child, armed with the social problem-solving skills needed to play with others and learn in a group.
Social Thinking is the connection that pulls all of these blocks together for children with social learning challenges. It becomes the supportive framework that gives students the concepts, language, and social learning experiences they need to optimize their development.
As the child progresses in elementary school, the social learning achieved throughout this pyramid supports academic success in reading comprehension, written language, participation in lab work in science, listening, and speaking.
