Support Center and Reflection Room
The Support Center guides students in social skill learning. After problem solving about a concern, the student is sometimes asked to finish a task in the Reflection Room.
The Reflection Room is designed to provide a quiet environment for students to think through inappropriate choices and create plans which will allow more school success. It can also be an appropriate setting for a "cool down".
Accountability and Thinking Before You Act are two important concepts which are explored during the problem solving process.
The Superflex character from Social Thinking has helped many children connect with their ability to become flexible thinkers. Children learn to think of different solutions and strategies for everyday problems.
The use of our Is this a BIG DEAL? chart is another tool which introduces ways for students to deal with hurt feelings and/or frustrations.
Problem Solving forms are sometimes sent home to promote family discussion about how some incidents can be handled differently.
Children are complimented on their problem solving skills and encouraged to have the self confidence needed to make good choices and be responsible citizens.
