Instructor: Michelle Garcia Winner 

90 minutes of instruction followed by Q&A

Tweens, teens, and young adults are expected to naturally develop social and organizational competencies needed in school and across their lives. However, students with social learning and organized thinking differences (e.g., autism spectrum levels 1 and 2, ADHD, twice exceptional, expressive receptive language, sensory processing, etc.) may not intuitively learn these concepts and skills. This course will explore 5 critical life skills related to social emotional learning and organized thinking that can and should be directly addressed and taught to students & clients ages 12-24 in our homes, schools, and clinics. We’ll also review a variety of explicit metacognitive frameworks and practical strategies for teaching and learning these critical social competencies.

You will learn:

5 critical life skills tied to social emotional learning and organized thinking;

Explicit metacognitive tools and practical strategies;

Tips on specific executive functions to foster development of social learners’ competencies toward achieving their personal and social goals;

Why learning to be comfortable with discomfort is an important anxiety management strategy.
