Discover how to become a better social thinker with Social Skill Builder’s You Are A Social Detective Beginner App. This interactive App teaches children with Autism, Asperger’s and other special needs how to appropriately engage in everyday situations. It teaches them how to use their eyes, ears and brain to make smart social guesses and investigate clues to see how others' emotions and responses are connected to their own behavior. Based on the You Are A Social Detective! book by Michelle Garcia Winner and Pamela Crooke of Social Thinking, the following social concepts come alive for children:

· Understanding Others’ Expected and Unexpected Behavior

· Understanding Others’ Comfortable and Uncomfortable Thoughts

· Learning to Use Your Social Tool Box Items (Eyes, Ears and Brain)

· Learning how to make Smart Guesses with your social tool box items


The You Are A Social Detective Beginner App allows the child to choose their own avatar and earn their social detective tools as they learn how to improve their social skills. Educators and parents can track and share progress by receiving outcomes after playing. This fun and engaging app is a great learning tool and autism resource for teaching social skills to all children!

Developed for teachers, therapists, counselors and parents, Social Skill Builder’s apps use real life scenarios and video modeling to teach social skills to children with Autism, Asperger’s and other special needs.
