Our Friendship Club group social skills (Amazing Amigos and Best Buddies) are back on for Term Three!

Sessions will be run by Kate Hyde and Natalie Nguyen, Provisional Psychologists this term.  Both will be working hard to make 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.
