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.
