Social Skills Program

Learn And Develop Social Skills

Social skills are vital to a child’s future interpersonal relationships. The early childhood and early school years are formative where children engage in a social manner, make friends, learn to cooperate with others and begin to solve problems. Some children develop skills easily whilst others need support to maximise their potential.
Our team delivers our social skills program focusing on emotional intelligence and problem solving skills for children in a group environment. With a ratio of 3 staff to a maximum of 8 participants, children will be well supported to achieve their outcomes. The carers may consult a therapist during the group session to share strengths and supports and build resources for resilience beyond the program.
Our social skills programs are based in the community, enhancing the opportunity to develop friendships and make connections. They teach children about sharing, taking turns, social norms, listening, solving problems and dealing with feelings. Children are supported to learn how to relate to others and develop socially skilled behaviours that will help them develop friendships and get along with others. Through play and activities our social skills programs aim to build self-esteem and improve social communication. Children will learn appropriate social engagement in the context of everyday activities such as preparing food, painting, drawing, storytelling, gardening and playing.
We run social skills programs on Saturdays for up to 2 hours.
