Thinking About Others

Thinking About Others takes the feelings and needs of others into account when we’re in their company. All social skills build on a constant consideration of others’ needs, wants, feelings, and thoughts.

Sample Video:

Thinking About the People Around You

VIDEO MODELING – When we’re in a public place, we think about other people around us. Rachel is in study hall and starts playing loud music. When she thinks about how that affects the people around her, she changes her behavior.

[FROM MY VIEW]

Rachel: When I’m around other people, I need to think about my actions. Everyone else was working, so they expected it to be quiet. When I noticed they were looking at me, it was a clue that I needed to change my behavior, so I used my headphones.

[FURTHER PRACTICE]

Narrator: When we are around others, we may need to change our behavior to fit in with the group. We can observe with our eyes to see what others are doing. See if they give us any clues and change what we’re doing. That way, we’re matching our behavior to the group.
