Student success with less stress in minutes a day
Everything we teach fits seamlessly into everything you teach. We’ve created effective, easy-to-implement therapy based routines that calm, focus, and improve academics without adding to your already full plate.
Activities are always integrated into academics for focused learning and faster mastery of academic skills. Unlike some of your students, we’ve done our homework and have supporting research printed on our materials for easy reference. There’s no need to sweat it when someone asks, “Where’s your research?”
Though you can use our activities on your own in your classroom or clinic, our research has shown that these strategies are even more effective when shared by teachers and support staff working together in classrooms. And yes…
We’ve heard all the reasons why collaboration doesn’t work including:
time or lack thereof
money and resources
special education and general education divide
limited agreement on effective strategies
busy agendas with no priority given to collaboration
We’ve designed our Therapy-based Academic and Behavior Support (TABS) program to minimize the barriers to collaboration and ensure students and teachers are getting the support they need in the classroom.
success stories from our workshop attendees piqued our curiosity
With the support of the University of Southern Queensland, we conducted extensive research focusing on school-based teams who described their collaboration as successful.
We mined the data for nuggets of gold and designed our TABS program based on the themes we uncovered.
Our program is evidence-based to enhance collaboration between multidisciplinary team members while also improving behavior and academics for students. It’s a win-win all around.
from our research Findings…Nine simple ways to Power Up!
Learn quick minute routines that are used daily by the entire staff and students to support all learners.
Integrate therapy strategies seamlessly with academic skills so no time is taken away from teaching.
Deliver services in the classroom so there are more hands on deck and more students getting help.
Encourage students to lead routines as soon as possible so all children become leaders in the class.
Send home visuals of routines and invite family members to use the activities together.
Teach minute lessons during staff meetings so everyone learns new routines at least once a month.
Post routines on bulletin boards around the campus for easy reminders to recharge and power up.
Adopt a school culture where staff open their doors, invite one another in, and share skill sets.
Implement a universal framework of theory, research, and tiered intervention that gets results.
“I’m having my rock star moment. The more I share my passion for educating others, the more I see my staff seeking information. I am excited and feel so successful.” Dr. Rachel Gambino, DPT, Rock Star
“Teachers, students, support staff, and administration professionals have loved using this curriculum and are seeing the difference that it’s making in the classrooms! I love having something tangible and already beautifully put together to share with teachers. I feel like I am being so much more effective as an occupational therapist in schools. Thank you!”
Tiffany Clark, OTR/L
