What is SNAP (Stop Now And Plan) 

SNAP helps fill a critical gap in children's mental health services by teaching the children with serious disruptive behaviours, and their parents, how to stop and think before they act and make better better choices "in the moment". The primary goal of SNAP is to increase emotional regulation, self-control and problem-solving skills to keep children in school and out of trouble. The middle years are critical for healthy development! Research shows that there are 7 years of warning (ages 7-14) before a juvenile with serious disruptive behaviours becomes a serious, violent offender, where costs to society can quickly spiral into the millions for each individual case.
