Casey’s Clubhouse is a 30-lesson journey for your child that builds upon six umbrella skills and five rotating approaches to training. Because social skills are complex, we layered the six umbrella skills from what we have found to be the most essential skills like energy regulation to the most complex skills like interpersonal mastery. As we continue to use, reinforce, and teach the first skill, we introduce and teach the second skills. The six umbrella skills are:
These six umbrella skills are broken down into five approaches to learning. As educators we know that children learn differently. Our five approaches give different learners different opportunities to learn the same material and others the opportunity to reinforce the learning from another perspective. Our five approaches are:
These approaches lend structure to our 30 lessons designed to layer learning while we reinforce basic interpersonal and life skills. As with Casey’s Kids, we reward, model, and coach kids each session to show skills including: giving eye contact, greeting each other by name, sharing, being flexible, apologizing, compromising, using patience, being inclusive, communicating, listening, respecting personal space, calm energy, staying focused, following directions, participating in conversations and activities and more.
