Why do stores give out free samples? They understand that when faced with something new, we are not yet motivated enough to pay the price for trying it. By shadowing your child in play, your goal is to give them a free or discounted taste of how fun play can be before they have to do all the hard work of listening, talking, compromising, and building cooperation.
We train teachers, 1-1 aides and parents to coach social and language skills through real world peer to peer interactions. Using a fun apprenticeship model instead of talking or lessons, we make rapid improvements in children’s behavior and motivation in group settings.
