Parents of children with developmental disabilities may receive funding for this class through the Jean Wolff-Rossi Fund! Tip: Apply early (30 days in advance minimum) - the Rossi Fund limits grant funds not just by the person, but also by the specific event, so only a limited number of qualified applicants will receive funding for the same training. I speak from experience!
|Did you know we have all sorts of "smarts" in our brains? Excerpt from Michelle Garcia Winner's book You Are a Social Detective.|
If you are not yet familiar with the principles of Social Thinking, I would suggest checking out Michelle Garcia Winner's websites and books before the class. The instructor does a great job of sharing the basic concepts, but there is a lot to know, so having a general understanding of Social Thinking going into the class would be helpful to get the most from the course. See our Books page for descriptions and links to Social Thinking books.
Parents - let us know after the class what you thought about it!
