Big Picture Thinking: Using Central Coherence Theory to Support Social Skills : a Book for Students
Many people who have difficulties with social cognition, including those on the autism spectrum, are not able to see the “big picture” of a situation. That is, they tend to focus, or even “hyper-focus,” on the details within the larger whole of a concept, conversation, story, picture or situation, and have difficulty recognizing the main idea, topic or general point. Big Picture Thinking was written to help students with cognitive deficits “see” how individual pieces of social information fit into a larger context, so that they may begin to become “big picture thinkers” and, therefore be more successful.
