In light of this, Hils Learning would like to invite you to an evening dedicated to bringing social thinking into the real world. We will be using case studies and role-play to develop Michelle’s ideas further and to explore practical solutions for some common, everyday situations.

Social Thinking with Michelle Garcia Winner

Only one day till the long awaited Social Thinking conference with Michelle Garcia Winner and we’re all very excited!

We’re also delighted that Mr. Teh Beng Choon, Chairman of the National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM) and Council Member of the National Council for People with Disabilities, will be opening the conference on Friday.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Play

A lot of children’s early learning is achieved through play. Play is simultaneously a source of stimulation for the brain and body, as well as a source of calmness and relaxation. Children find out about the world around them through touching, manipulating, exploring and experimenting. Children also learn how to solve problems, work cooperatively with others and acquire the appropriate social skills through play.

Despite the power of play in learning, as children get older, play is often exchanged for more mundane, adult-like academic work!

At Hils, we try to incorporate play into our teachings as much as possible- we really do believe that the best learning occurs when our children are having fun!
