Superflex is a popular social skills curriculum from Social Thinking (www.socialthinking.com) that many students are learning about here at Westgate! Superflex is an imaginary superhero who helps kids be friendly and flexible thinkers who can change their attitudes and actions. The Unthinkables are pesky villains who try to get kids to engage in unsocial behaviors. Below you will find an explanation of each Unthinkable, how to defeat it, and the Thinkable (Superflex's helpers) who can help defeat that Unthinkable! Talk to your kids about Superflex and the Unthinkables/Thinkables - it's a great way to get kids on board with changing their negative behaviors!
