Foundations for Learning™
Creative's School (and Life) Preparation Program
Foundations is a customized, adaptive
therapeutic intervention; a developmental
learning experience for those not ready for
school or other life challenges. It improves
interactions by focusing on attending to
others, social engagement, expressive and
receptive communications, motor skills, and
use of senses.

It addresses following directions,
participating, transitioning, or playing with
others; it is a place where children are
always welcome—period.
Transition

Handle sensitive topics without tantrum

Pay attention - Sit still - Follow directions
