Programs

Using the Social Competence Inclusive Play (SCIP) Model, Connect Us:

  • Builds social competence in children who are susceptible to being bullied or becoming bullies
  • Improves elementary school recess environments
  • Provides programs that advance community education and awareness

The SCIP model focuses on building social competence in children through inclusive and collaborative play. Programs allow children to practice communication, problem-solving and leadership skills in a safe and supportive setting. Our programs are designed to promote positive social interactions using evidence-based strategies and evaluation tools developed by Dr. Annette Nunez, PhD.

  • Recess Facilitation: School recess consulting, assessments, facilitation and training programs for volunteers, teachers, paraprofessionals and recess aides
  • Coaching and Counseling: Partnering with licensed therapists and coaches to offer parent, child and family counseling, academic, classroom and recess support and physical and life-skill coaching for elementary-age children
  • Consulting, Education and Advocacy: In collaboration with Breakthrough Interventions, LLC, providing training and education to schools, parents and child-service providers on best practices to ensure that children with high-functioning autism and/or other social challenges are successfully integrated into schools and able to reach their highest potential
