AFNIC has developed a program for children with neurological disabilities that has been extraordinarily successful both at home and at school. We have brought this program to the families and schools of children with neurological disabilities all across Texas. These neurological disabilities create behavioral as well as educational challenges. Parents and teachers have been overwhelmed at how well this program works.
The program has dramatically improved the lives of every child and family that has implemented it. The real effort is to convince families and schools to adopt the different program (model) and then help them implement it. Thus, AFNIC's first task is to promote the program to the families and schools.
Traditional programs such as reward and punishment theory are so ingrained in our culture, it takes significant efforts in training and follow-through to educate the families and schools in how to implement the program. This is time-intensive work.
The program teaches a successful way to deal with inappropriate behaviors and create a successful environment for neurologically-impaired children at school and home. Once a successful environment is established, the triggers that cause frustration can be identified. Once the triggers have been identified, the missing or delayed skill needed to cope with the trigger can also be identified. AFNIC’s program then creates a measurable and objective way to teach the skill and slowly add the triggers back into their environment. We teach the child the skills needed to handle frustration.
One of most successful tools AFNIC provides to explain and promote the program is AFNIC’s Parent and School Training workshops. We provide it to parents and schools to explain how to work with neurologically-impaired children and teach the missing skills. Over time, we drastically reduce the frequency and severity of the behavioral and educational challenges.
