Social Emotional Awareness Literacy
Social & Emotional Learning for
Preschoolers, Teachers and Parents
Originally developed by Lynn Louise Wonders in 2003 and implemented in multiple preschool settings between 2003 – 2007 under a different name, S.E.A.L. Social Emotional Awareness Literacy for Preschoolers™ is an early learning program for young children implemented in preschool settings by licensed mental health professionals to assist children, teachers and parents in increasing awareness and skills for identifying, expressing and managing emotions while developing effective respectful assertiveness and communication skills.
Observations were collected and studied from 2003 – 2007 by Lynn Louise Wonders and what was seen was that when young children learn skills for awareness and adaptive expression, communication and self soothing, the degree of aggression and other problematic behavioral markers in the preschool settings and at home were reported to reduce with teachers and parents reporting remarkable improvement.
S.E.A.L. Social Emotional Awareness Literacy Program for Preschoolers™ offers preschools an opportunity to have a licensed mental health professional implement 12 weekly in-class lessons, 2 teacher trainings and 2 parent trainings so that the curriculum can live on beyond the 12 weeks when the mental health professional provides the training on site.
Preschools contracts with and compensate the Certified Provider of S.E.A.L. Social Emotional Awareness Literacy Program for Preschoolers™ in addition to paying a nominal licensing fee to Wonders Counseling Services, LLC to adopt and utilize the curriculum for the year. Renewal of license is available annually.
