The focus of this study centered on the use of Social Thinking vocabulary to develop the social cognitive abilities of first grade students in the general education classroom. As it has been demonstrated that social competencies can be taught, one teacher implemented three key concepts from The incredible flexible you! curriculum. Observation, discussion, guided reflection and assessment were used to analyze the practice. As a result, students demonstrated learning of social concepts and the teacher was able to increase her personal awareness of social cognitive abilities demonstrated in and demanded by the general education classroom.
