Introducing SUPERFLEX(c)

Superflex and the Team of Unthinkables are created by Michelle Garcia Winner & Stephanie Madrigal. Think Social Publishing (c) 2009. Social Thinking ®

Directly from the website:

Superflex®: A Superhero Social Thinking Curriculum provides educators, parents and therapists fun and motivating ways to teach students with social and communication difficulties (undiagnosed or diagnosed, such as Asperger Syndrome, ADHD, high-functioning autism or similar). The three part cognitive behavioral curriculum helps students to develop further awareness of their own thinking and social behaviors and learn strategies to help them develop better self-regulation across a range of these behaviors.

Meet Glassman (2)

Glassman makes people have huge upset reactions (regardless of the problem size). "He lets a person be flexible to some extent, but then all of a sudden he just breaks. He doesn't melt down slowly; he quickly starts getting very upset, often over "tiny" problems.

Glassman (c) is on the Team Of Unthinkables, created by Stephanie Madrigal and Michelle Garcia Winner.
  Meet Worry Wall (4)

Worry Wall "makes a person worry or feel nervous so much about the people around him or the social situations that he or she "hits a wall" and stops being able to talk about it at all to the people nearby."
