Learn how to teach the award-winning You Are a Social Detective! and Superflex curriculum to boost social awareness and self-regulation. We’ll explain the critical scope and sequencing required to teach these materials with fidelity and improve social competencies. These books are designed for elementary school children, but we’ll explain how to modify them for use with older kids. Lessons support Social and Emotional Learning programs (SEL), Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), and Response to Intervention (RTI). Interactive, creative group activities abound in this conference! Ultimately, learn how to encourage generalization and social learning for a lifetime.

Contact hours are awarded free of charge. CEUs (.6) are available by contacting Deborah Rooks-Ellis at MAIER ( A two week notice and $20 processing fee is required for CEUs.

Speaker Bio: Nancy Clements, MA, CCC-SLP, is a speech-language pathologist and executive director of Social Thinking Boston, where she creates a culture of learning, caring, and creative programming. She’s a member of the Social Thinking Training & Speakers’ Collaborative and developed Brain Boards, a framework that helps build emotional awareness and strategies for improving self-monitoring.

PLEASE NOTE: This course focuses on the use of Social Thinking’s books “You Are a Social Detective!” and “Superflex… a Superhero Social Thinking Curriculum” to teach concepts related to Social Thinking. Our intention is NOT to market the products, but instead to show how to teach an appropriate scope, sequence, and pacing of the curricula in the manner they were designed. Our hope is to increase the consistency and fidelity in the ways these concepts are taught.
