Practical, effective,
personalized supports

Both students and staff need personal supports to thrive in a school environment. But the particular supports that each one needs differ by school, by student, by teacher, and by autobiographical context – culture, socio-economic status, family, peers, neighborhood, and systems of justice or injustice. A wide range of youth and adults in a wide range of settings are using Ripple Effects to support their success at school and in life.

Students address risk factors, trauma, inequity, behavior issues, SEL skill deficits, and everyday challenges

“[In Ripple Effects]... students get to choose the obstacles they themselves have to overcome. They get to see and hear direct stories of other students, and what the consequences of their choices were.” Asia Dove, LAUSD

Hundreds of thousands of students use Ripple Effects to positive effect. To our knowledge no two of them use it in exactly the same way, (even when assigned the same scope and sequence!). With hundreds of content areas and 10-13 instructional modes available for each topic, there are millions of ways the program can configure itself to meet each student’s needs and preferences. No teacher, or social worker, or counselor, or nurse  could be expected to deliver this same level of personalized SEL instruction or customized behavioral intervention to every student, all of the time. Learn more about which students Ripple Effects helps and how.

Adults get personalized technical coaching and SEL supports to deal with non-academic stressors

Students aren’t the only ones who need personal supports to succeed in what has become an increasingly high stress educational environment. As with students, the stresses on teachers differ by where they teach, what they teach, who they teach, how they teach, and by their own autobiographical context. Ripple Effects personalizes SEL and behavioral coaching for academic and non-academic staff. As with students, each can enter through the door of their most pressing personal or collective concern. Learn more about who specifically Ripple Effects helps and what they are learning.
