"Rainbow Program - Building social skills and self-confidence for children in grades TK-5"
The Rainbow Program is part of a statewide, research-based program that uses small group and one-on-one sessions with children to teach leadership skills, empathy, social problem solving, emotion management and listening skills. These skills help children feel more confident in their classroom and in their interactions with others. Children may benefit from the Rainbow Program because of many different reasons, which may include new school adjustment, academic pressure, peer pressure, excessive shyness, divorce, death in the family, etc. The new revised Second Step curriculum and Steps to Respect are used in the small group setting. Non-directive play with an adult special friend is the approach used in the one on one sessions. Referrals to the Rainbow Program can come from teacher recommendations or parent requests. There are two twelve week sessions, one in the fall and one in the spring. For further information please contact Debbie Roof, school psychologist and Rainbow Project Coordinator.
