In Term Three, our group social skills programs start up again. Social skills are what we need to be able to make and keep friends. For children the emphasis is developing play and conversational skills with peers.
We will be running two “Best Buddies” groups to help to build your child’s confidence. Groups will be using modelling and role playing to practice new skills and refine existing skills.
Who is suited: Children aged 6 to 8 years of age who need help with making or keeping friends.
Where: Child Wellbeing Centre at our Tuohy Lane offices, Midland.
When: Group A – Wednesday afternoons from 4pm to 5.30pm & Group B – Thursday afternoons during school Term Three, 4.00-5.30 pm
How much: $87.80 per session
How to get involved: Contact our Reception on 9274 7062 to book an initial appointment with Simone or Toni.
Best Buddies sessions will be run by two facilitators (either Simone, Toni or Ruby). The skills being taught in each term will be determined by the needs of the children in the group. However, we will be looking at a range of skills including introducing yourself, conversation skills, play skills, helping a friend, sharing, and turn-taking.
At the initial appointment we will talking to you about your child’s needs so we can work out whether the group program is what they need.
