1. Social & Emotional Learning (SEL)

Social and Emotional Learning allows children to learn how to read, process, and express their feelings, thoughts, and actions. Our activities focus on the five SEL pillars utilizing evidence based SEL practices and curricula.

2. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is an action-oriented form of psychosocial therapy that assumes that maladaptive, or faulty, thinking patterns cause maladaptive behavior and "negative" emotions. The treatment focuses on changing an individual's thoughts in order to change his or her behavior and emotional state.

3. Behavioral Modification Point System

The behavioural modification program is built on a point system, which is based on earning and losing points contingent upon the child’s behavior. Children exchange points for a variety of rewards. This type of treatment program provides for the efficient use of incentives because it uses points as mediators that let individuals know immediately the consequences of their behaviors without having to provide an immediate reward. The point system serves two primary functions. First, it is one of the main procedures used to increase the frequency of appropriate behaviors and to decrease the frequency of undesirable behaviors exhibited by the children in treatment. Second, it is the primary data system for the intervention program. An accurate record of positive and negative behaviors provides information that details the nature of a child's problems. In addition, data from the point system are used to track a child's response to treatment. Consistent implementation of the point system is important to insure maximally effective treatment for the children.
