The ProbSov is a customizable educational strategy in the form of mazes and puzzles. It combines Social-Emotional Learning with Executive Function and Mindfulness to introduce young minds to a 6-step process for learning how to learn. 

Let’s Go Emo takes these lessons to the next level by engaging students in literary examples of the five core SEL domains. Each program is supported by Teaching Guides, Discussion Guides, and interactive arts activities.

What do you want most for your child?

 

If your first choices are happiness and health, you’re not alone.

 

All around the world, without fail, parents choose happiness and health as the two things they want most for their children. These values are always selected before financial, academic, and career success. This makes perfect sense because true success cannot exist without happiness. 

 

This is why Social-Emotional Learning is the most important aspect of your child’s education.

One of the greatest lessons we can teach our children is how to teach themselves.

Every child is born with a natural curiosity and the ability to learn. Unfortunately, we rarely, if ever, explain to them how their brains and bodies accomplish this amazing feat.  We just send them off to school to learn. Some will take to it comfortably, and others will struggle. However, all children can flourish if we teach them one incredibly obvious and shockingly overlooked little detail;

how they learn.

The ProbSov is a customizable educational strategy in the form of mazes and puzzles. It combines Social-Emotional Learning with Executive Function and Mindfulness to introduce young minds to a 6-step process for learning how to learn. The first step is to make children aware of the amazing learning skills they may not know that they have. The Probsov helps children identify, understand, develop, and master their skills of Mindfulness, Focus, Courage, Creativity/Brainstorming, Initiative, and Grit. They use the ProbSov to teach themselves these skills so that they can use them on purpose – not just by chance. 

• Addresses learning challenges such as ADHD and anxiety.

• Confidence reduces bullying conflicts.

• Children develop vital self-affirming, social-emotional skills that put them in control of their learning.

The ProbSov is the ultimate I.E.P. (Individual Education Plan) / I.H.I.P. (Individual Home Instruction Plan) because it adapts to your child’s strengths and weaknesses as they participate in it. With your guidance and by using the self-assessment tools, the program teaches children to understand how they learn. This knowledge empowers them with the ability to teach themselves. Understanding how they learn is a revolution for children who may think they are “dumb” because they don’t learn as easily as others learn. When they discover, it’s not that they can’t learn but just that they learn differently; it alleviates feelings of failure and elevates confidence. 

The Product <> The Service

This educational tool is both a product and a service. The ProbSov SEL homeschooling curriculum kit is the product and the individual sessions, and the professional development of the ProbSov SEL program are the services. The curriculum is purposefully designed for customized and focused individual learning. However, a more general version is available for groups of up to 20. Please contact Rodro for additional information.

 

The ProbSov SEL is for all children but it can be especially useful for children with learning challenges such as ADHD, anxiety, dyslexia, executive function deficits, and some children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The program harnesses a broad range of cognitive and Social-Emotional Learning skills. This provides children with the ability to use strengths in one area

to help overcome deficits in others.

Social-Emotion Learning (SEL) is — 

the learning that makes all other learning possible.

 

We do not need to look further than the dwindling grades of a child who is being bullied to see the relationship between a solid social-emotional foundation and academic success. This is a result of the direct connections to and overlaps with Executive Function and Mindfulness. Each of these disciplines supports and enhances the others. [Comparison Chart]

 

These five books, along with a program called the ProbSov help children learn in three ways:

  • First, by introducing them to and engaging them in SEL for their well-being.

  • Second, by teaching them to use their SEL Skills to learn how to learn. 

  • Third, by connecting their SEL Skills to all learning in and out of school.

Whether a child becomes a professional athlete or a neuroscientist, the true measure of their success will always be happiness and fulfillment. That happiness and fulfillment will be the result of the social-emotional learning, that enabled all of their other learning to flourish.
