TAB was developed over a six-year period in consultation with elementary education teachers, counsellors and students. It was extensively field tested with 900 students and 37 teachers and has been shown to improve attitudes towards bullying, victims, and children who stutter (Langevin, 1998).

Designed for use by teachers and school counsellors, TAB is also adaptable for use by psychologists, social workers, speech-language pathologists and others who work with children and their families.
