Social Thinking in a Social World
Do you know this child?
- She always sits alone on the bus
- He interrupts other people’s conversations
- She isn’t invited on play dates
- He melts down when there’s unexpected change
The social world can be a challenging place.
At Steps to Socialization (s2s), we understand that not all children process social information the same way. Some have to be taught how to think socially, step by step.
From the welcome mat on our front porch to our team philosophy, we offer a safe and nurturing environment where experts in the field of social thinking help your child explore and discover how the social world works.
Your child will benefit from our proven approach to social learning.
Our unique program for children in elementary through high school with age-appropriate language skills features targeted group activities that make the hidden rules of daily social interaction simple and clear for those who find it hard to:
- Establish and maintain friendships
- Share space effectively
- Interpret social cues
- Work in groups
- Pay attention and stay focused
- Organize school tasks
These difficulties are often associated with:
- Non-verbal learning disability
- High functioning autism
- Asperger syndrome
- Other social challenges

“He’s not anti-social. He just doesn’t know how to be social. It’s as if the social world is a foreign country that he’s visiting, but he doesn’t speak the language or understand the customs.”
