Did you know that researchers at Duke and Penn St. found, “statistically significant associations between measured social-emotional skills in kindergarten and key young adult outcomes across multiple domains of education, employment, criminal activity, substance use, and mental health”?
Improve social-emotional skills including communication, thinking, self-control, and flexibility with one of our programs. In one outcome study, families who participated in our intensive programs experienced lasting improvements in self-control, attention, and communication during quarantine. When compared with children receiving other interventions, including ABA, the majority of children who did not receive our intensive programs did not exhibit the ability to apply these capacities while at home. It’s important to note that we focus on ‘parent-involved’ programs. Research shows that when parents spend a minimum of 30-60 minutes a day playing and interacting with their child, that their child experiences healthier social-emotional development. We also know that not all parents have the time to do this and that not all interventions encourage this.
For children with delays in relating, communicating, socializing, and some behavioral challenges a more intensive program may be necessary. Utilizing Dr. Greenpan’s version of Floortime, The Greenspan Floortime Approach®, The Floortime Center® can help with the rest.
