SNAP® is a proven family-focused program that teaches children with behavioral issues ages 6-11, struggling with behavioral problems, how to make better choices in the moment. SNAP is offered free of charge and has helped thousands of children and families around the world. The program helps families learn how to identify triggers (link to page explaining what a trigger is from the peanut butter bar discussion?) and use SNAP to make the connection between their thoughts, feelings and actions.
The primary goal of SNAP is to help children to stop and think before they act and keep them in school and out of trouble.
The gender-sensitive SNAP® Boys and SNAP® Girls program is designed for children who are engaging in aggressive, negative behavior and/or have come into disciplinary contact with authority figures at school or in the community.
Children ages 6-11 experiencing behavioral problems at home, with peers at school, with persons in authority, and in the community are appropriate referrals for our program.

SNAP® services are completely free to youth and their families! The SNAP® program is funded through the Department of Juvenile Justice.
In addition to providing services at no cost, SNAP® families are fed healthy meals and snacks at each SNAP® session. Sibling care and in-county transportation can be provided if needed.
