The 5-Minute Kids program is a creative, effective service delivery model for students working on articulation. This program minimizes the amount of unproductive “down time” and time out of general education curriculum, while maximizing active, individualized learning. Comparative data collected during the four-year pilot implementation of this program indicated students participating in the 5-Minute Kids program were discharged 42 therapy hours sooner than the students receiving traditional group therapy.
This program is well-developed and easy to use. The manual includes information on scheduling options and IEP wording for service delivery based on the degree of need.
If your caseload is full, if group scheduling is a challenge, and if you are looking for a way to deliver services more efficiently and effectively, then the 5-Minute Kids program may be your answer.
