Our Learning Seeds experiential growth methods guide you through reflecting on your child’s motivations and locating techniques that match your child's current needs. You will never restrict your child to ideas in single level, but respond and nurture each glimmer of social interest by exploring techniques from all appropriate levels. Children should never be thought of as having completed or "not yet ready" for any level, but as constantly being in a period of growth.
Help your child make the connections between internal thoughts and desires, and the rules and happenings of the environment.
Build on existing behaviors, even negative ones. Your child’s behavior will always lead you to an ideal starting point. It contains the keys to what he/she really wants and likes.
As your child's socialization level changes in various situations, so will your interactions with your child and with his/her peers. Drawing on techniques and strategies from previous and more advanced levels, Enlightened Shadow materials will easily guide you, step by step, insuring the maximum benefits this program provides.
We train teachers, 1-1 aides and parents to coach social and language skills through real world interactions.
Using a fun apprenticeship model instead of talking or lessons, we make rapid improvements in children’s behavior and motivation in group settings.
Because they know that when faced with something new, we are not yet motivated enough to pay the price for trying it.
Our Enlightened Shadowing methods guide you to give children a free or discounted taste of how much fun play can be before they have to do all the hard work of listening, talking, compromising, and building cooperation.
The Enlightened Shadowing interactive solution grid gives easy access to strategies and tools for facilitating social interaction. Our reports provide individualized insights into each student's progress, which strategies have been most effective, as well as indicators of staff training needs.
This same data can inform district-wide training initiatives without taking precious time from teacher-student interactions.
No more making lists of what a child can't do. As your child's interactions and motivations improve, our Enlightened Shadowing program automatically creates a record of his/her progress, and guides you through ever more beneficial strategies.
Our individualized reports allow sharing of effective experiential strategies, targeting of new goals and consistency of approach between all providers... teachers, 1-to-1 aides and parents.
