Some people intuitively understand how to think socially… others need to be explicitly taught.
Our “socially sluggish” may not have a formal diagnosis…. They may just appear somewhat out of step with their peers. Some might be academically gifted. Others may have a diagnosis on the Autism spectrum, Attention Deficit Disorder (with or without hyperactivity), or Non Verbal Learning Disorder. People who benefit from social thinking therapy may be adults, teens, middle or elementary school age.
