The Alert Program® for Children
The PATCHES-Paediatrics Alert Program® for children is a behavioural modification program designed for children, families and educators. The Program teaches about a child’s alertness levels and provides strategies to help keep a child’s internal engine (alertness) running just right.
- How does your child’s engine run?
- Does it run in high gear, low gear or just the right gear?
Our engine levels go up and down throughout the day, which can make it hard to pay attention, learn and play and do the things we like to do. The Program focuses on improving a child’s own executive functioning and ability to self-regulate their behaviours by assisting a child understand how their own internal engine runs. The Program works closely with the child and their families and is practical by design.
The Alert Program ® can be undertaken in either 6 or 12 individualised sessions for families, carers, or educators.
