The Celebration Center provides a way to honor children's diverse achievements- from first somersaults to writing their name- in a way that increases connection, intrinsic motivation, and self-worth. If we reward children with stickers and stuff, we teach them to value stickers and stuff. The Celebration Center honors children and taps into the brain's natural reward center to promote intrinsic motivation. If we want children to value performing well for the sake of performing well, we must develop intrinsic motivation instead of relying on stickers and stuff.

The Safe Place is a self-regulation center. Children go there to learn and practice active calming techniques. This is the #1 predictor of social and academic success.

Social skills are taught through a social story and visuals. The social story is a helpful tool for parents to help their child with a missing skill. As you read the story, pause after every page and make sure the child has understood the message. Reading a story can always turn into a precious moment of connection. Dedicate a special time to read this book to the child. It is your special time together. Finally, enjoy it! This moment of connection will then translate—throughout your day—into cooperation, willingness and impulse control. How you read the social story can be a great investment in changed behavior as well!
Visual Routines provide predictability and safety by showing children our expectations and what to do next. Adults think in words; children think in pictures. By using pictures to show children what to do, we provide consistency and help them understand our expectations more clearly. Children must understand exactly what to do before they can do it.
