The program is designed for students with social cognitive deficits with fairly good verbal skills and academic performance. It is NOT suited to all individuals as it is a cognitive approach that focuses on thinking about others thinking about us. Individuals as young as 4.5yrs all the way to adults have benefited from this approach.
Sessions are conducted once weekly for an hour, in small groups of 2-4 students. This allows for more personalized teaching. Sometimes students may require individual teaching. Each group lasts 16-20 weeks, but students may continue for several months. Although learning the process of social thinking takes longer, it is a stronger lesson over time when compared to just teaching students specific social skills.
