This matching game helps players improve their social and communication skills. As they respond to examples of positive and negative thoughts, kids learn to solve problems and make decisions and have FUN! 

Social Smarts helps all children improve their social relations and communication skills. It is especially helpful for children who tend to misread social cues, including those who have been diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome or are at any other position on the Autism Spectrum. Social skills and communication are two of the five dimensions measured by the AQ (Autism Spectrum Quotient) assessment instrument (Baron-Cohen et al 2001). Social Smarts offers players a fun way to learn about the thought choices they have when communicating with friends, parents, and teachers. It is helpful for young people to understand that they are in control of their thinking and to see and hear the difference between "Smart Thinking" and "Not-So-Smart Thinking." Smart Thinking promotes positive communication and understanding of the social rules that encourage positive relationships. The game uses specific concrete examples to promote flexible thinking and discourage rigid thinking. Although some children naturally have better social and communication skills than others, all children can improve their skills in these areas. Social Smarts is a matching game where players turn over cards to match the name of the Thinker (a fictitious student) with a matching thought. Bonus Cards ask players to discuss the consequences of putting the thought into action or to relate the thought to their own experiences.
