The group aim is to help young verbal learners develop skills they need to be flexible social thinkers and social problem solvers. Through the experiences of four characters in the storybooks and the accompanying curriculum units and music, children will learn about the social mind and social expectations. They will also learn about their own thinking (and that of others) to help them make better decisions when in the midst of social play and interactions. Unit 1 focuses on “Thinking Thoughts and Feeling Feelings”.
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
