Group Outcomes: The Alert Program helps children articulate their inner experience of self-regulation (how alert they feel). The program emphasizes how to change alert levels throughout the day, making it easy to get out of bed, work, play, learn, relax, socialize, and go to bed. Sessions will focus on teaching children how to identify and respond to the following questions:
Are you in a high alert state?
- Your engine in high gear?
- Do you feel hyped up?
- Or stressed out?
Are you in a low alert state?
- Your engine in low gear?
- Do you feel lethargic?
- Or feel droopy?
Are you in an optimal alert state?
- Your engine running “just right?”
- Do you feel alert and attentive?
- And is it easy to focus?
Do parents need to attend? No, parents do not need to attend.
We recommend parents check children in with the group facilitator in the group room at the scheduled group time and return 15 minutes prior to the end of the scheduled session for a group summary of what was achieved during the group program. Individual feedback forms will be provided at the end of the group program.
Can my child attend some of the sessions?
Unfortunately, children are required to attend all sessions to ensure they are able to build on the content learnt during each separate day.
What do group facilitators do during the non-face to face time?
Will we receive written feedback of what my child is learning during the program?
Yes, at the end of the program you will be provided with individual feedback on your child’s progress.
How can I pay for the group program?
NDIS and private Eftpos payments are accepted.
Is the program following an evidence based approach?
Yes, our programs are all evidenced based.
What is the typical structure of each day?
Groups begin with free time to allow children to settle and transition to the group. Children then participate in group time, allow them to meet new friends. The specific group outcomes are then practiced by the learners. Snack time gives children the opportunity for a break, toilet and have something to eat. Children then come back together to review group outcomes. Parents arrive 15 minutes prior to the end of session for combined parent feedback.
When is payment due?
Payment is due prior to the date that enrolments close, to secure your child’s position
What do therapist’s do during Session Preparation/Evaluation Time?
Therapists will evaluate your child’s progress, write up feedback forms, email relevant worksheets if necessary and prepare any necessary resources
