Square Width Model for Children’s Programs Consultation

Square Width
Square Width is a model of embedded recognition and responsivity for use with all programs for children.  It’s purpose is to fuel constructive social, emotional and academic engagement by all children, including gifted, neurotypical, traumatized, autistic, advantaged and disadvantaged children in inclusive groups.  It uses the diversity of inclusive groups to generate development.  It embeds processes that have been demonstrated empirically to lead to social and academic competence into programming for children.  In practice, it has resulted in substantial social and academic gains for children with social and/or academic difficulties.  This model was developed and piloted at the Children YES afterschool program at the Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center in from 2010 -2012
