Separate curricula exist for early childhood (Skillstreaming in Early Childhood), K-6 (Skillstreaming the Elementary School Child), and 7-12 grades (Skillstreaming the Adolescent). Instructors can run through the entire protocol or select different component skills to meet the needs of specific youth. Cue cards are used to prompt students to use Skillstreaming strategies. To implement Skillstreaming, an educator training video ($125.00), a workbook, student manual, and skill cards are needed ($78.00 for full set) –

8 Getting Your School Prepared

9 First Steps to School Preparedness for Manualized Intervention Implementation 1) Review and select manualized intervention Consider needs of students when selecting intervention Potentially consider administrator/teacher/ family/student input when selecting intervention Decide who will facilitate group

10 2) Discuss plans for implementation with principal and other key administrators – Explain why group interventions are important/efficient/effective – Solicit feedback re: how to obtain referrals for group, when to implement group, etc. – Provide a brief description of the manualized intervention selected for implementation – session outline,

11 3) Inform teachers about group and request referrals – Compose a letter or announcement for teachers briefly describing the group intervention – Solicit referrals from teachers

12 4) Identify space and time to conduct group – Space Private Large enough to accommodate group – Time May consider rotating time of group so students do not consistently miss the same subject/class period Consider lunch or before/after school times, if feasible
