 Joey Learns the Touching Rule 

Every year we instruct  over 4,000 Preschool, Kindergarten, 2nd grade and Special Needs students in San Luis Obispo County.  

Our qualified Educators teach  assertiveness skills and model how to ask for help if they have a problem.  Studies show that these are key skills lacking in children at risk for abuse. The lessons varies according to the grade level, and the skills targeted for practice are developmentally appropriate. At all grade levels, children have opportunities for skill practice and transfer of learning. 

To learn more call  805.543.6216.

Kidz Tool Box for Personal Safety lessons are free of charge to all schools and community groups
