1 Day Conference - 1st June 2020


Social Thinking® Across the Home and School Day: The ILAUGH Model

This conference will provide strategies suitable to help school age children from 5 years to young adults who have average/above average educational levels or mild to moderate learning difficulties.



Main speaker: Pamela Crooke

Michelle Garcia Winner will introduce the Conference and speak for the first half of the morning


Much of the day will focus on the ILAUGH Model of Social Cognition. ILAUGH is an acronym for Initiating Communication, Listening with Eyes and Brain, Abstract and Inferential Thinking, Understanding Perspective, Getting the Big Picture, and Humor & Human Relatedness. The ILAUGH model demonstrates not only why people with social learning challenges have weaker social abilities but also how social interpretation is linked to academic tasks such as written expression, conversational language, reading comprehension, and organisational skills.


As we wrap up the day, we will explore how to teach at the roots—and not through the leaves—of the Social Thinking–Social Learning Tree. We will then discuss how to write realistic IEP goals based on rubrics. Mainstream teachers find the information in this course applicable to all students as it pertains to social emotional learning and audiences around the world love that it furthers their own social emotional insights! In this course you will discover an array of concepts and strategies that bolster social learning and help students meet socially based educational standards. (read more)
