Shared Vision ensures that young people and adults are on the same page with expectations as well as possible pitfalls for the upcoming activity.
LOW EMOTIONAL RESPONSE
Low Emotional Responses allow adults to provide instantaneous, neutral, non-verbal feedback for individuals without embarrassment or interruption of an activity.

Beat the Timer allows young people block out distractions and stay on task to the finish.
