Social Skills Programs

At Child Wellbeing Centre we offer a range of group programs for children and parents. Groups are typically small, no more than four to six children at a time and run after school hours.

We also regularly provide information on up and coming programs through our Facebook page.

 


The Friendship Club

Each term the Centre runs small  group social skills programs for children between 4 and 11 years of age. Our team of behaviour therapists and psychologists make these sessions fun and motivating. Programs are tailored to meet the needs of the children participating in groups.

In each group we employ a four-part training approach using modelling, role-playing, performance feedback, and generalisation to teach essential pro-social skills to children.
