About The Event
Social Thinking permeates every human relationship because it is what we do when we interact with one another. Some individuals with social learning challenges do not acquire the rules of Social Thinking so readily. As a result, they find it difficult conforming to social rules and expectations and have difficulty making and maintaining friendships.
Based on The Incredible Flexible You (TIFY) curriculum written by Ryan Hendrix, Kari Zweber Palmer, Nancy Tarshis and Michelle Garcia Winner, we will be addressing some fundamental Social Thinking concepts in a fun, exciting and relational way. It will be conducted by Oasis Place’s specialist team consisting of speech language pathologists, psychologists and occupational therapists. We welcome typically developing children and children with social learning weaknesses to simulate a typical classroom or similar learning environment. As this is a language-based approach, it is most suitable for children with normal or near-normal language development. On the final day of the camp, parents are encouraged to attend the last hour to learn what their children have experienced that week.
Using a combination of stories, music, dramatic play, art and craft, and life skills activities, the topics covered will include:
- Understanding yourself and others
- The group plan
- Thinking with your eyes
- Body in the group
- Whole body listening
