Research shows that, prior to the pandemic, more than 60% of children had experienced at least one traumatic event by the age of 16. However, the aftermath of the pandemic and the resulting stress on children, teachers, and families have magnified concerns for children who have experienced trauma and elevated the importance of providing all young children with the positive social–emotional and mental wellness skills they need to have success in school and in life.


Introducing the Social–Emotional Impact Solution

This solution combines the power of three research-based tools that were designed to meet the unique social–emotional and mental wellness needs of early childhood: Al’s Pals, Noni, and ReadyRosie. These innovative and easy-to-use solutions deliver everything children, educators, and families need to facilitate meaningful social-emotional interactions when they need them the most.

  • Al’s Pals for Every Child 
    Al’s Pals provides the foundation of resiliency and protective factors that every child needs and deserves with a nationally recognized, evidence-based social-emotional curriculum designed for the specific needs of preschool children.
  • Noni for Every Teacher 
    Noni guides teachers in responding to the unique needs of the children in their program who require specific and targeted additional care and attention by creating trauma-sensitive, relationship-focused learning environments to mitigate the impact of trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) on young children while prioritizing their own mental health and wellness.
  • ReadyRosie for Every Family 
    ReadyRosie helps to better serve and engage all families with a research-based framework and video modeling that will help families extend and reinforce social–emotional and mental wellness concepts at home.


Building Relationships That Create a Community of Social-Emotional Support

Together, these tools cultivate the deep relationships between children, teachers, and families that are critical to a child’s success in school and life. The Social-Emotional Impact Solution builds a network that works together to nurture resilient children who have a place in their community and the world.
