Book: Superflex … a Superhero Social Thinking Curriculum [Paperback]
by Michelle Garcia Winner
Superflex: A Superhero Social Thinking Curriculum provides educators, parents and therapists fun and motivating ways to teach students with Asperger Syndrome, high-functioning autism, ADHD and other diagnosed and undiagnosed social difficulties how to build social thinking skills. Superflex combines a book, comic book and CD to create a curriculum that develops in each student’s brain their own superheroic thinking processes that can overcome the challenges in different social situations that arrive across the school and home day.
The curriculum works best with elementary school children (grades K-5) as well as with immature older students who respond to visual books. Prerequisite books to make this tool most effective include Thinking About You Thinking About Me and You Are A Social Detective.
The Superflex curriculum offers clear lesson plans to help educators, SLPs, other therapists and parents create a personalized Superflex Superhero Training Academy for their students. The students learn how each of them have Superflexible capacities in their brains that can overcome a Team of Unthinkables, such as Rock Brain, Topic Twister Meister and Mean Jean.
And many parents and educators have found success allowing students to expand this team to address specific challenges. The curriculum comes with a colorful 21-page storybook, Superflex Takes on Rock Brain and the Team of Unthinkables. This book tells the story of how Superflex came to be. The children will enter Superflex’s town, Social Town, and learn about the cast of Unthinkables who are trying to overtake and rid the town of Superflex forever. Superflex and his sidekick dog, Bark, go on their first mission to try to save the citizens of Social Town.
The curriculum package includes the Superflex curriculum, the storybook to be read and shown to students and a CD of all the worksheets and handouts to allow for easy printing of the colorful and engaging materials for your lessons.
