Social-Emotional Learning Skills
Social-Emotional Development is Vital to Connecting Children to Their World
Social-Emotional Learning Skills have an enormous impact on our relationships and success in school, work and life!
They affect the following:
- social skills (social behavior)
- play skills
- critical thinking
- emotional regulation and self-control
- written expression skills
- ability to learn/work in a group
Social learning challenges are often observed in students who have ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, social anxiety, social communication disorder, giftedness, or no diagnosis at all.
“Social thinking” is the process by which we interpret the thoughts, beliefs, intentions, emotions, knowledge and actions of another person along with the context of the situation to understand that person’s experience. If we are engaging or sharing space with another person, we use this information to determine how to respond to affect the thoughts that person has about us to achieve our social goals."
— Michelle Garcia Winner, SLP, founder and CEO of Social Thinking
neuroBridge utilizes the Social Thinking methodology to provide instruction in the areas of:
- Self Regulation
- Social-Emotional Learning
- Executive Functioning
- Perspective Taking
- Social problem solving
- Individual and/or small group instruction
- Team approach: SLP and OT

Much of what we do at school, work, and in our community requires understanding the perspective of others.
Our team approach utilizes evidence-based strategies to improve social thinking skills in order to assist the student in developing better social skills, reading comprehension, narrative language, written expression, ability to work/play in a group, as well as make and keep friends!
