Which ICONz program is right for me?

Middle School

Specifically designed to teach youngsters how to deal successfully with situations they encounter every day.  Our students gain an understanding of others, learn about motivation in others and how to respond to people around them.  They also learn about how they interact with others.  This is often a revelation in itself.

High School

Ready or not, physical and cognitive changes lead adolescents toward adult hood.  Social stories with the ICONz strategically embedded portray situations that high school students face everyday.  The importance of peers and evolving relationships with family and teachers focus the stories.

Young Adult

Self-sufficiency, dating and adult roles and responsibilities should characterize life for young adults.  This curriculum focuses on identity and others’ expectations in the workplace and community and at home with family.  The ICONz explain situations, relating them to the lives of our clients.  Social life can be more comfortable.
