This book is where to start to learn more about how social problems connect to academic problems, such as reading comprehension and written expression. The book introduces Michelle's ILAUGH model, which provides a way to pinpoint specific areas of challenges that a student may face and how these affect school, work and social interaction. For ages K-adulthood and beyond, this also provides insight on what information we expect students to develop "naturally" to become strong learners.

Handouts and IEP goal suggestions are provided at the end of each ILAUGH chapter. Also included are chapters on starting social groups and the connection between social thinking and reading comprehension.

While Inside Out was designed as a practical tool to help educators and parents begin to explore some of the techniques available, mainstream teachers have also found it to be extremely helpful!

Teaching students "social skills" first requires us to understand more about the supporting social cognitive components and then work with students to increase their social thinking concepts. Michelle's ideas are clearly articulated and supported by examples from her clinical experiences.

Inside Out provides practical strategies and techniques, including worksheets, for implementing social thinking and perspective-taking educational lessons as well as some ideas for related goal writing for use in IEP meetings.

This book helps the reader to understand the relationship between social skill deficits and difficulties with academic tasks such as reading comprehension, written expression and working as part of a group.

A chapter explores how to work with the student who says, "I don't care!" Another chapter examines ideas for running social thinking/social skill groups.

Extremely user-friendly, the book breaks down social thinking into smaller more workable parts!
