Best Practices

Ages 3–5


  • Promote emotional and social competence and treat behavioral and emotional problems in young children.
  • Provide teachers and caregivers with a blueprint for daily routine, playground organization, classroom management, and teacher-child interaction, all designed to create a warm, supportive learning environment.
  • Assist teachers with a classroom management strategy designed to improve aggressive/disruptive classroom behavior.


  • Build a comprehensive framework for the integration of child and adolescent services programming that links the juvenile justice system with human service and other related agencies, including schools, child-welfare services, mental health agencies, and social services.
  • Create an infrastructure consisting of client information exchange, cross-agency client referrals, a networking protocol, interagency councils, and service integration.
