We believe that behavior can be an inhibitor to the educative process. With the PAIC Program, we help children to see that they can focus on their work or project and not allow themselves to be pulled into conflict or behavior that stops their work.
While working in a classroom setting, Dr. Hayes noticed that some of the children were not focusing on learning. They were throwing papers, talking, and getting up from their seats without permission, and disturbing the learning environment. This behavior served as an inhibitor to the educative process.
As the result of that observation, Dr. Hayes developed the PAIC Program to help children see that they too, have a stake in their education and future. She presented them with choices; they can either become winners by listening and focusing on their studies or they could allow others to “take their power” and pull them away from studies and class work. She emphasizes that by listening to their teachers, they can have their dreams of becoming successful come true.
