Payment for the 10 weeks is expected upfront. This is a group intervention, and as such, your child’s participation each week is crucial to the success of the group.
What this programme aims to do?
Learning to be sociable is an ongoing process. This programme aims to teach your child basic building blocks to be “we thinkers” instead of “me thinkers” in a fun and interactive way. It aims to challenge them to be “cognitively flexible” so they are able to “share space” with others, and “follow the group plan.” We aim to do this by teaching them to be “social detectives” so that they can use their power of observation to notice others, take in social clues and change their own behaviours.
Additionally, we will be working on executive functioning skills through different life skills activities. Executive function skills help us with things like planning, managing our time, saying or doing the right things and remembering things. It is not just about knowing how to do something but being able to carry out the task with all the other factors in play.
Lastly, as young teens going through puberty, having a positive self-concept leads to healthy development. We will work towards promoting a growth mindset in our teens and aim to build their self-esteem. We teach these objectives through age-appropriate leisure activities.
The group programme will be conducted on a term basis. The first term will consist of eight 1.5-hour sessions with frequent reinforcement and reviews of introduced concepts, in order to provide your child with multiple opportunities to put theory into practice. The group will be facilitated by qualified and trained therapists and therapy assistants
