Abstract
Since we introduced the Superflex® Curriculum in 2008, creative educators, therapists, parents, and related service professionals have come up with all sorts of new ways to teach the concepts and ideas related to Superflex. Yet, you wanted games and visual teaching tools to make your teachings even better.
The Thinkables & Unthinkables Double Deck is the superflexible teaching tool you asked for to use with individuals who are learning about or have already been introduced to Superflex, the 14 original Unthinkables, and the newer characters, the Thinkables (first mentioned in our book, Social Town Citizens Discover 82 New Unthinkables for Superflex to Outsmart).
You take the lead in using the cards ? they?re a blank canvas of possibilities!
Create games such as ?Go Fish? with the cards
Use the Thinkables cards to say ?good job? when a child or student has mostly put an Unthinkable to rest
Use an Unthinkable card as a visual tool to remind a student to use his/her strategies when one of those clever, sneaky characters is invading the student?s brain
Pick an Unthinkable or Thinkable and play ?I Spy?? where students use their Social Detective skills to look for that character showing up in themselves or others in the group, the classroom, or the school.
The possibilities are endless, limited only by your imagination and your own superflexible thinking!
Content
Unthinkables deck: 52 cards with multiples of each of 14 Unthinkable characters
Thinkables deck: 52 cards with multiples of each of 14 Thinkable characters and Superflex cards
Cards contain the character?s image, name, AND powers. Cards are plastic coated, standard playing card size.

For parents and professionals. Ages 7 to 10+

Abstract
This video modeling DVD features real life social situations reenacted by children. This video recognizes that in order to be socially successful, children must learn to notice and "read" the social cues and messages that people use to communicate. Fitting In and Having Fun aims to stimulate a child's perception of social situations by visually showing them how to decode and interpret information from others. It also helps them to be more aware of their own body language and the messages they are sending. The target viewer is an elementary school-aged child who is ready to learn about the intricacies of social interactions. Social interactions are broken down, showing both the negative and positive consequences of how a child interacts and responds in social settings. As the child becomes aware of other people's perspectives, they can learn what to do differently to affect a better outcome. The social situations reviewed in the tape are: Being a tattletale; Dealing with disappointment; Taking a joke too far; Starting a conversation; Accepting help; Being bossy; Knowing when to end a conversation; Accepting criticism; Interrupting; Taking turns speaking in a conversation; Talking too loud; Embarrassing situations; and Dares.

PeopleSmart-1 teaching basic friendship skills, is the first video program to focus on the specific skills needed to make a "real" friend. Students will learn the 10 best ways to meet people, how to distinguish between an acquaintance and a real friend, and what to do to maintain a good relationship.
PeopleSmart-2 helps students learn the difference between trust and gullibility and that "niceness" does not always mean "goodness." This program focuses on teaching students who and when to trust, and how to recognize and deal with people who don't care about their best interests.
Notes
Although originally designed for students with mild to moderate learning, emotional and cognitive disabilities, LifeSmart Curriculum series is appropropriate for any population in need of a comprehensive review of basic life skills.

Abstract
Depicts, step by step, children demonstrating various social skills. Each skill is formatted sequentially, similar to a cartoon strip, with digital pictures of actual children combined with text and cartoon bubbles to denote what the children are saying - and sometimes thinking - as they engage in the skill. Included are the right (and sometimes the wrong) way to act with accompanying text that enhances the learning experience. These pictures provide a means to compensate for the inherent difficulties many autistic individuals share. They make explicit what to do and say in social situations. In addition, by utilizing a picture format, they capitalize on students' visual processing strengths to facilitate attention and comprehension.

Abstract
Thinksheets for Tweens and Teens focuses on the social issues and challenges faced by pre-adolescents and adolescents and introduces social concepts and strategies that can help individuals navigate these tricky years. Social rules and expectations change with age; thinking and behavior that was appropriate in elementary school can quickly become inappropriate and unexpected as students move into middle and high school. We developed these Thinksheets to help educators, therapists, and parents encourage more mature social thinking and related shifts in their students? social skills. The Thinksheets explore a wide range of topics, starting with the basic Social Thinking understanding of the Four Steps of Communication, to exploring the hidden rules of the classroom and when is it okay to correct others. Chapters include What Is Social Communication?, Problem Solving, Lessons on Emotions, Different Perspectives, Being Bossy and Jerky, Lessons on Friendships, The Social Fake and Other Tricks, and Participating in Groups. There are more than 160 Thinksheets across these 8 sections, and all are included on the Mac/PC friendly CD that comes with the book. Material in this book may be used by older students who are less mature or who learn this type of information more slowly.

Superflex Takes On One-Sided Sid, Un-Wonderer and the Team of Unthinkables introduces readers to the Unthinkable One-Sided Sid, who uses his powers to make people talk only about their interests or themselves, and his sister sidekick Un-Wonderer, who uses her powers to keep people from thinking about others. In the story, the clever duo One-Sided Sid and Un-Wonderer are wreaking havoc at Social Town Elementary by invading the brains of kids and getting them to do or say things that show they're only thinking about themselves and not others. Superflex to the Rescue! A multitude of lessons from the Superflex Academy teaches kids strategies for thinking about others and asking questions by using people files, boredom alerts, the Interest-O-Meter, Add-a-Thought, and much more. Short quizzes pop up throughout the book to reinforce learning, and teaching materials are included on a CD for easy printing.

Abstract
Superflex and Kool Q. Cumber to the Rescue! introduces readers to the Thinkable Kool Q. Cumber (we call him Kool, for short!). Kool helps Social Town citizens stay calm when problems happen, and use strategies they learn to figure out the size of a problem and the expected reaction size. In the story, Aiden and his classmates present science projects, but Aiden?s friend Sam becomes frustrated with problems throughout the day. As Sam feels his brain being invaded by Glassman, he uses the strategies he learned from Kool and the five Power Pals to calm down and have a reaction that matches the size of the problem.

Abstract
In this inspiring book, Harvard-trained child and adult psychiatrist and expert in human motivation Dr. Shimi Kang provides a guide to the art and science of inspiring children to develop their own internal drive and a lifelong love of learning. Drawing on the latest neuroscience and behavioral research, Dr. Kang shows why pushy “tiger parents” and permissive “jellyfish parents” actually hinder self-motivation. She proposes a powerful new parenting model: the intelligent, joyful, playful, highly social dolphin. Dolphin parents focus on maintaining balance in their children’s lives to gently yet authoritatively guide them toward lasting health, happiness, and success.
