    Michelle Garcia Winner - Social Thinking, Autism & Aspergers

    in Family

    What is Social Thinking and how does it pertain to individuals on the autism spectrum? Are social skills dynamic and situational? Who is Superflex and how does he know the Unthinkables? How does teaching social-decision making vary when working with children, teens and adults?
    We're going to be discussing the answers to all these questions. Join us today as Karen Krejcha with Autism Empowerment Radio interviews internationally known speaker, author and speech language pathologist, Michelle Garcia Winner, MA, CCC-SLP.
    Michelle coined the term "Social Thinking" in the mid-1990s and continued to evolve the Social Thinking framework that today includes information, vocabulary, curriculum, and strategies that help individuals with social learning challenges become better social thinkers. Her years of experience demonstrated that lessons taught through Social Thinking could apply across a range of learning challenges that extended well beyond Autism, Asperger Syndrome and ASD, to individuals with ADHD, nonverbal learning challenges, as well as those with head injuries or emotional learning challenges.
    In addition to The Social Thinking Center / Clinic in San Jose, CA, Michelle also founded Social Thinking Publishing and has written or co-authored more than 20 books on Social Thinking. She is internationally recognized as a thoughtful and proflic writer and travels around the world speaking on a multitude of topics related to Social Thinking.  
    Michelle is presenting at a variety of conferences throughout the United States in February, March and April. For information, please visit:

    Uniting the Autism Community - Changing the World

    in Lifestyle

    Is it possible to Unite the Autism Community? Can Autistic and Aspie adults, teens and children respectfully come together with parents, educators, service professionals and nonprofit autism organizations to discuss challenges and work toward the common good?


    If so, what would that look like? Who would be seated at the table? Who would facilitate the conversation? 


    How do we calm the chaos, reduce the infighting and begin to work together for a stronger, more united, autism community that focuses on acceptance, empowerment, optimal outcomes and positive life trajectories? How do we provide individuals and families with support, opportunity and connection?


    Join Autism Empowerment Radio as Karen Krejcha discusses these challenges. Diagnosed with Asperger syndrome in her 40s, Karen is mom to two sons (8 and 15) also diagnosed on the autism spectrum. As Executive Director and co-founder of the nonprofit, Autism Empowerment, Karen regularly engages in conversation with autistic teens and adults as well as parents and other family members. She sees and hears the frustration from those on the spectrum who want to be respected and accepted and not seen as a burden upon society. She sees and hears from parents who want to do the best for their children but struggle navigating convoluted and conflicting systems of service that sometimes hurt more than they help. 


    Is it possible to strengthen the Autism Community?  We think so!


    Let's talk about it.
