How Can We Encourage Kids to Think Critically?
Exploring Mindful Use of Language
Each time we speak, we have the opportunity to choose our words. Speaking in a mindful way can mean that we are purposefully choosing words that will invite and empower individuals with social communication difficulties to think critically. When we pause to think about what we say and how we say it, kids in turn stop to think about what they say or do in response. In this presentation, participants will be shown a speaking style called “declarative language” that can be naturally used within social interactions to encourage connection and learning across areas of perspective-taking, flexible thinking, problem solving and experience sharing. This webinar is geared for parents and professionals, all ages children to adults.
