Potty Training- the Nipissing Developmental Screening tool used by doctors and teachers to track child development indicates that by typically by the age of 3, children will be following 2 step directions. However, potty training can be an 8-10 step process. This is a lot of information for a little one to remember, process and then implement. Our Potty Training visual schedule is an easy and affordable way to guide your child through the steps to be successful with the transition of this major milestone. We also have a Hand Washing schedule available. $15
Hand Washing Schedule- especially during our current circumstances, it’s important to teach how to properly wash hands. Our Hand Washing schedule clearly lays out the steps to follow in order to successfully rid of all of the germs and dirt. We have also included a special strategy to ensure they scrub for an appropriate duration of time rather than an immediate rinse of the soap suds. $10
Feelings and Coping Strategies- we’ve created an emotional intelligence package to help with the first steps to self-regulation. It includes a feelings board where your child can identify their feelings and a coping strategies board where they can choose what they need in the moment. This package also comes with a 12 page e-manual to help you teach this thought process to your child and also strategies to help you with this process without the visuals. The feelings were chosen from the Ontario Kindergarten curriculum in order to get your child emotionally ready for school. $25
