(New to the Superflex Series? See what it’s all about in this short article.)
This Get Started Bundle includes six foundational products, including the first storybook, You Are a Social Detective!2nd Edition and You Are a Social Detective! Teaching Curriculum & Support Guide. Educators, therapists, and caregivers will find the Thinkables & UnthinkaBots Double Deck, 3rd Ed to be a helpful supplementary teaching visual when using the Superflex curriculum, and kids love the instructional and fun Superflex Bingo game and Superflex Super Sticker Collection.
Looking for the complete collection? Check out the Superflex Series All-In-One Bundle.
Please Note: Superflex posters are not included in this bundle and are sold separately. If you’re working with younger students, consider also teaching the We Thinkers! Series to provide instruction on foundational social concepts. Then, move on to the Superflex Series.
IMPORTANT: These products are designed to be taught in somewhat of an order by first teaching social observation from the child's perspective (You Are a Social Detective!: Book 1 in the Superflex Series) before teaching from the Superflex curriculum. Avoid teaching kids to simply “control their behavior,” as this is not the purpose of these materials. See the products included in this bundle and the order in which to teach them below.
What’s Inside the Superflex Series Get Started Bundle?
You Are a Social Detective! 2nd Edition (multiple-award winner!)

You Are a Social Detective! 2nd Edition is an award-winning storybook that should be taught over an extended period and revisited often to encourage social learning in all contexts.

Superflex 2nd Edition Kit: Curriculum, Storybook, and Visuals
New! Updated & Expanded
Next, students are ready to learn how to activate their superpowers of flexibility, self-awareness, executive functions, self-regulation, and more with lessons from the Superflex Academy. This eagerly awaited new edition of the bestselling Superflex® Curriculum package has undergone extensive updates and changes to now feature inclusive images, neurodiversity-friendly language, new Superflexes, revised Thinkable & UnthinkaBot characters, Bot powers, visual supports, and much more. The revised curriculum provides a structured teaching approach with 25 evidence-informed, interactive quests (lessons) and a step-by-step guide for how to introduce each lesson, ideas for what to say and do & downloadable resources. The Visuals Pack contains quick-reference teaching tools for the 14 Thinkables and 14 UnthinkaBots. And the revised and updated storybook, Superflexes Take on Rock Brain and the StuckBots introduces kids to the pretend realm of Social Town and the UnthinkaBots (also called Unthinkables). BONUS digital content: Each lesson includes access to a teaching PowerPoint to bring the characters and concepts to life and increase student engagement and participation.
Note: The idea of teaching social concepts via the lens of a social superhero and imaginary characters was inspired by ideas from, and developed alongside, Neurodivergent students. However, the curriculum and storybooks are designed to empower all neurotypes to learn strategies to activate their Superflex powers and transform themselves into their own unique superhero. A good choice for both schools and clinics. Buy it at a discount as part of the bundle, or separately at full price.

New language & character updates! A FUN and FLEXIBLE game developed for children (ages 7–10+) who have been actively working with You Are a Social Detective! and the Superflex® Curriculum and are familiar with core Social Thinking Vocabulary. Unlike the “matching” format of traditional bingo games, Superflex® Bingo engages players in “thinking through the Bingo Board” to expand their social emotional learning. Players listen to and think through hundreds of different social situations to identify when their own Superflex powers are engaged, which of the 14 UnthinkaBots® are causing havoc, or which Social Thinking Vocabulary concept is being discussed. Includes 12 different themed card packs. Perfect for use in the classroom, clinic, or home. Get the game as part of the bundle, or separately for full price.
Superflex Super Sticker Collection: Thinkables & UnthinkaBots
New important changes, additions, and updates!
Who doesn’t love a sticker? Kids have been asking for these for years, so we finally developed over 500 colorful stickers showing the UnthinkaBots and Thinkables. Ideas for using the stickers as supplemental teaching supports can be found in the Superflex Curriculum, or just let your students have fun finding these characters in literature, writing about them, drawing adventures about them, or just decorating their water bottles! Buy the stickers as part of the bundle, or separately for full price.
