Social Skills Program

Social Skills Program

Our social skills programs run each school term and are play-based so they are heaps of fun for children. We group the children according to age and developmental level to ensure your child has the opportunity to develop optimal skills.

The focus on the social skills groups are to develop your child’s abilities to interact, share, take turns, listen and respond to messages, observe and interpret other people’s feelings, and develop play skills.

We also offer an Intensive Social Skills Program which operates over the two weeks of  term school holidays. Children attend five highly specialized group sessions, which is equivalent to our regular weekly social skills group.
