About SNAP®

You are here

SNAP®, which stands for Stop Now And Plan, is an evidence-based behavioural model that provides a framework for teaching children struggling with behaviour 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 for boys under 12 in conflict with the law. 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." Today, SNAP offers gender specific programs for children ages 6-11 and youth ages 13-17.
