    We use a Transactional Model where we replicate different social settings in which children have the most difficulty adapting.  These include situations like losing a game, taking input from others in a group project, and leaving things incomplete.  We provide a safe environment where kids are allowed to make mistakes and learn from them.  Then they are more prepared for the real world of school, which is more unforgiving.
