Thinking Behind This Short Program
The sooner after an inappropriate social behavior a person is corrected, the more effective the correction will be. This is particularly true of adolescents who are in a steep social skills learning curve due to their rapidly increasing self-awareness. Teachers are often the best placed to offer quick adult feedback on social behavior. This technique allows teachers to provide this feedback in a timely and effective manner.
Who Is This For
This short program works well with children from 8 to 14 years of age. It is particularly effective with shy children, children with autism, or children with ADHD or Tourette’s syndrome.
How Long Should the Program be in Place
We recommend that the program be instituted for a semester at a time. It is a good idea to only apply the program every second semester to help avoid program fatigue.
