Primary Project is a school-based early intervention program for young children (kindergarten through second grade) who show evidence of early school adjustment difficulties.
Primary Project is an indicated prevention program, meaning that it targets children deemed "at-risk." It seeks to maximize children's healthy school adjustment and is targeted primarily for children with evident or incipient school adjustment problems.
Primary Project seeks to enhance learning and adjustment skills and other school-related competencies and to reduce social, emotional and school adjustment difficulties in preschool through primary school. Carefully selected and trained paraprofessionals (child associates) provide timely, effective help to children who are just beginning to show adjustment difficulties. Washington Elementary in Fayetteville is one of 10 schools currently in Northwest Arkansas that has Primary Project through Ozark Guidance.
