Providing and Training Shadows
We provide excellently trained shadows to deliver classroom support for children who require assistance. Whether that support is needed in class, during recreational activities or summer camp; our staff comes with years of practice in the art of chaining and shaping behavior. We can help train teaching staff to improve the likelihood of student progress. Otherwise, our select supply of one-to-one shadows are available for hire either in public or private sectors where support is needed. Far from promoting dependency our staff of shadows understand.
At our Mental Health Center in 300 Knickerbocker Rd, Cresskill, NJ, we maintain the delicate balance between assisting when needed and creating over dependency. Our training instills the shadow with the idea that they are to “work themselves out of a job”. In other words we fade ourselves out as soon as possible allowing the child to function independently.
