What is SNAP®?

What is SNAP®?

SNAP®, which stands for STOP NOW AND PLAN, is an evidence-based, cognitive behavioral model powered by the minds at Child Development Institute (CDI). SNAP® helps troubled children and their parents learn how to effectively manage their emotions and “keep problems small.” 

The gender-sensitive SNAP® Boys and SNAP® Girls programs are designed for children ages 6-11 who are engaging in aggressive, anti-social behavior and/or have come into contact with authority figures at school or in the community. Highly trained staff work with each family to develop goals that focus on preventing and reducing the chances of conflict with family, peers, and authority figures.
