SNAP®, which stands for Stop Now And Plan, is an evidence-based cognitive behavioral model that provides a framework for teaching children struggling with behavior issues, and their parents, effective emotional regulation, self-control and problem-solving skills. The primary goal of SNAP is to help children to stop and think before they act, and keep them in school and out of trouble.
SNAP was developed by Child Development Institute, an accredited children’s mental health organization in Toronto, in 1985 as an intervention program. Since then, the program has grown and evolved into an internationally recognized model for teaching troubled children and their parents how to effectively manage their emotions and “keep problems small.”
