PROGRAM PLANNING


HOME PROGRAMS – A home program targets behavioral and social skills that are necessary for a child to function within a family.  Parents are taught strategies for more effective behavior management.
 
BEHAVIORAL PROGRAMS – A behavioral program targets the red behaviors that need modification.  It also includes the green solutions and alternative skills that the child needs to learn in order for progress to be long-lasting.  It includes creative rewards and correction systems for effective change.
 

IN MAINSTREAM SCHOOLS – At the Social Learning Institute, we visit students in regular education schools who are doing relatively well academically but are suffering socially and/or behaviorally.  We set up individualized programs to target their needs. 

 

IN SPECIAL ED SETTINGS – Despite that special education schools generally individualize specifically for their students with special needs, some of their students may need an even more individualized and comprehensive program for their social and behavioral challenges.  The Social Learning Institute sends therapists into schools to help the staff set up a program that meet the needs of children with significant behavioral and social challenges who are not progressing with the standard behavioral methods.

 

LIFE SKILLS  PROGRAMS – Life skills programs target skills such as dressing, showering, eating with manners, choosing clothing according to the weather, household chores, street-crossing, shopping, travel training, and so forth.
