As a child psychologist, mother, and grandmother, I wrote the Adventures on Pepi’s Island program to help elementary-age children become confident and successful in meeting everyday social problems and challenges….We hope that families will have a fun and insightful journey with Pepi, the Savvy Parrot!
The Adventures on Pepi’s Island suite of apps is intended to be both challenging and entertaining. We have designed our educational game to be a fun way for kids and parents to work together. I have illustrated the characters and places to look like a children's book, but with many added features like treasure, badges, game pieces and boards for interactive game play.
We developed a closer relationship in that the program opened up much more discussion on topics I did not know my child was dealing with at school.
Does your child have problems making or keeping friends ? ... have the EQ (Emotional Intelligence) to get along with others and understand their points-of-view ? …handle bullying and anger well?
Would you like to be more involved in guiding your child’s social-emotional life and choices? The Adventures on Pepi’s Island suite of game apps is a proven educational program for teaching your child social-emotional skills at home. It helps caring parents be their child’s best teachers. The games provide comprehensive skill building in four key social domains.
Parent testimonials report that the program has improved their communication with their child. These research-based games, rooted in the field of social-emotional learning (SEL) also build the child's self-esteem and problem-solving skills.
This free app helps parents assess their child’s social-emotional skills. The PASS is a parent rating scale developed and tested by Dr. Susan McClure and is comprised of 64 social-emotional skills taught in the Adventures on Pepi’s Island suite of apps. The PASS assessment survey provides a bar graph of the child’s strengths and weaknesses in four Social Domains:
1) Emotions in Self and Others,
2) Social Communication and Prosocial Behavior,
3) Perspective-Taking and Empathy,
4) Social Problem-Solving
The app provides a summary of the child’s skill level in each area and recommends specific apps in the Adventures on Pepi’s Island suite (shown below) that would most benefit the child’s overall social competency and EQ. Up to eight assessments may be made using the parent checklist, with individualized results.
