Happy New Year! A new year means new adventures and new challenges. It also means that students return to the classroom after a hopefully restful winter break. It also means that students have not been adhering to their daily routines because they weren’t in the classroom every day. Getting students back into an established routine can prove challenging. Luckily, our Healthy Relationships Curriculum can help.
Our Healthy Relationships Curriculum knows the importance of routines. Special educators know their students best, and our team works with them to help find the ways our adaptable curriculum can serve their students and routines more efficiently and effectively.
Our curriculum provides many opportunities for educators to build routines for their students. We understand that no two students learn the same way, which is why our curriculum features a variety of ways to teach students. Our Healthy Relationships Curriculum offers easy-to-use lessons to guide you in delivering challenging lessons. These lessons cover every topic, from basic hygiene to making friends to dating for our older students.
Our Healthy Relationships Curriculum also understands the importance of using visuals and alternate means of learning. That’s why our program includes over nearly 200 role-play & demonstration videos, over 60 scenario cards to help students practice real-life skills, and fun, interactive role-playing games to act out the lessons.
However, we understand that routines must also be created at home, on weekends, and over any prolonged break from school. To make this as easy as possible for students, our Healthy Relationships Curriculum encourages special education teachers to work with students’ parents and encourage involvement. We provide the resources they need to work with their child at home to continue their education with easy-to-understand reinforcement activities and methods to keep them engaged in practicing the skills they learned in the classroom.
I spent more than 20 years as a special education teacher and have never come across a program that simultaneously supports educators and students. They can feel comfort in knowing that our program will adapt to the needs and routines of their students. Please review our sample lessons and request a free demonstration of our Healthy Relationships Curriculum! You can also use the chat function on our website to contact us. We are always happy to take questions from educators in live time.
