  • Understanding Others’ Comfortable/Uncomfortable Thoughts

Reviews

“Social Skill Builder has done a great job working with us to create this tool,” say Michelle and Pam. “We think our students will be motivated to use it to help them become better equipped to evaluate social situations, while also helping them to learn our evidence-based Social Thinking® Vocabulary.

“This product explores the Social Thinking teaching concepts discussed in our book, You Are a Social Detective. A key aspect of helping students improve their competencies and therefore their social skills, involves teaching our students to take more active notice of relevant social cues generated by participants in context. To foster this learning, students enjoy watching video clips to help them more finely tune their observational skills while learning in a game-based format. We hope your students enjoy its use!”

Elementary school speech pathologist Karen Vinson says, “The Social Detective software, with its engaging videos, is a perfect complement to the Social Thinking curriculum I currently use with my students. This product has helped my students with ASD develop a deeper understanding of social relations and the ability to decode social interactions.”

Software Features

The software features a fun mystery-themed jingle and uses a footprint, magnifying glass and clues theme throughout. As with all Social Skill Builder learning software, automatic data collection and a built-in game feature rewarding correct answers adds to the motivation.
