Primary Intervention Program (PIP)


The Primary Intervention Program (PIP) is a one-on-one social program, which enhances the educational experience and personal development of children. A Child Aide dedicates 30 minutes once a week to be with the child in the playroom. 

Fifty years of research has shown through non-directive play that PIP creates many benefits for children. Children are given the unique opportunity to become more comfortable with the school process, to emotionally work through the challenges of school, and to become more empowered. This positive bonding experience runs between 8-12 weeks.

The second component of PIP is the Social Skills Group (SSG), which uses the"Getting to Know You" system. This system educates the children on new ideas and techniques essential for mastering the social challenges that many children face today, in and out of the classroom. Group members have the unique opportunity (through role-plays and other fun activities) to gain real, hands-on experience with methods proven to increase social and academic success. The group will meet once a week for 30-45 minutes and runs between 16-20 weeks.

PIP and/or SSG are currently being offered at three of the elementary schools in our area: Alturas Elementary, Surprise Valley Elementary, and Tulelake Basin Elementary. Child Aides are assigned to each school and are responsible for providing the services to the students.
