Registration for Term Four group social skills programs are now open! Each term the Centre runs small group social skills programs for children between 4 and 11 years of age. Our team work hard to make these sessions fun and motivating, while teaching the important skills needed to make and keep friends.
In each group the team employs a four-part training approach using modelling, role-playing, performance feedback, and generalisation to teach essential pro-social skills to children. Programs are tailored to meet the needs of the children participating in groups.
All groups are run by two facilitators from our ABACAS team – currently Simone Healy and Toni Schmitz (Provisional Psychologists). Groups are run after school hours and on Saturday mornings and are open to any child needing help with developing their friendship skills.
For our last round of group social skills programs for the year, the team will be running four groups each week in Term Four. The program timetable is below:
|Social Skill Group||Suitable ages||Day of the week|
|Best Buddies||6 – 8 year olds||Wednesday and Thursday (note children only attend one session)|
|Fantastic Friends||8 – 11 years olds||Friday|
|Secret Agent Society (SAS)||10 & 11 year olds||Saturday|
Please look at our our social skills program page for more information about the various groups programs.
