SOCIAL SKILLS GROUP

Getting ready for TERM 4 2017

This term, the popularity and effectiveness of our groups allowed us to offer sessions twice a week. Our Term 3 groups have been a ball of fun, with kids learning to strengthen their social skills, meeting new children and enjoying themselves while they are at it!

Now we are getting ready for Term 4 and we'd love to hear from you.

Would you like to give your child some extra practise using their social skills in group settings? We have a fun program to kick start their success!

This 8 session social skills group will have a mix of indoor and outdoor activities in big and small groups. Target areas include:

  • Greetings and eye contact
  • Turn taking and sharing
  • Listening to group instructions
  • Problem solving
  • Sharing information
  • Conversation skills
  • Requesting and commenting
  • Group interactions
  • Motor skills and coordination
  • Transitions
  • Outdoor games and activities
  • Cooperative play
