What We Do
If you’re looking for the most effective ways to include children and youth with disabilities into your program, you aren’t alone. SNIP can help! We provide free training and free on-site technical assistance to after school programs in San Francisco. Contact us today to talk about the ways SNIP can help you successfully include all children!
SNIP is thrilled that Rion Hoffmann, the new Training and TA Manager/Inclusion Coach, began working full-time at the end of February. Rion has been working with children with special needs for 10 years. For the past five, she worked with the San Francisco Unified School District as part of the Central Resource Team providing training and resources to teachers and classroom staff on how to best support their students with challenging behaviors. She also facilitates Integrated Play Groups for children with autism, and teaches yoga for children with special needs and their families.
A new training curriculum has been developed by San Francisco After School for All about the AFA Core Competencies for OST supervisors and line staff. Core competencies are the abilities of staff to apply specific knowledge and skills to their professional practice. In other words, the core competencies are the key ingredients necessary to make a successful after school staff. SNIP is pleased to have been able to participate in developing the training – don’t miss us in the video clip at the end of the Core Competencies training for supervisors.The training is available on the SFUSD Excel Program website.
Please note that SNIP’s current workshop descriptions and schedule, along with the related AFA Core Competencies, can be found here.
