Stop & Think Social Skills Program
The Stop & Think Social Skills Program is an evidence-based program through the US Department of Health and Human Services' Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). It is the anchor of our Positive Behavioral Support/Social-Emotional Learning System (PBSS/SEL), and it has been implemented in thousands of schools nationwide over the past 35+ years. The Program has been implemented with students at all levels of "the Tiers"- including, for example, adolescents in juvenile detention centers and residential settings for students with behavioral and emotional disabilities.
The Stop & Think Social Skills Program has demonstrated effectiveness in helping preschool through high school students develop social, emotional, and behavioral self-management skills. Many counselors and school psychologists also use it with students who have more significant behavioral needs (it was originally developed in a day treatment program with psychotic, autistic, and similarly significantly involved students).

Wisconsin SEL Competencies Alignment with Performance-based Programs
xSEL Labs provides SELweb, evidence-based social and emotional competence assessments for K-6. SELweb assesses four skills that are included in the Wisconsin competencies—emotion recognition, social perspective-taking, social problem-solving, and self-control. These competencies are also part of the CASEL model and are the target of instruction in widely used evidence-based SEL programs. SELweb is a web-based assessment that uses a direct assessment strategy—that is, students demonstrate their competence by solving challenging social and emotional tasks. For example, to measure emotion recognition, children look at faces and indicate what each person is feeling. Students wear headphones and interact independently the assessment. SELweb takes 20 to 30 minutes and can be administered in one or more sessions and is available in English and Spanish. Interactive reports provide summaries at the district, school, grade-level within school, classroom, and student levels. xSEL Labs offers program alignments
that describe the relationship between the competencies SELweb assesses and the lesson content of several evidence-based SEL programs.
