SNAP® is designed for children ages 6-11 who have been having behavior difficulties at home, school, or in the community. SNAP® helps children and parents effectively deal with anger by teaching them how to respond in a way that makes their problems seem smaller, not bigger. With practice, children and parents are able to stop, calm down, and generate positive solutions at the “snap of their fingers.

Developed by the Child Development Institute in Toronto, the program includes group sessions with fun and interactive activities;  individualized support provided by a SNAP® Child Worker; school advocacy; a homework club; crisis intervention; and victim restitution. Additionally, parents meet weekly to learn more effective child management techniques and how to help their child, as well as connect with other parents who face similar challenges.
