What this programme aims to do?

Social buddies is a weekly group program that aims to improve your child’s social
awareness and behavioural flexibility. It will be conducted in a total of 3 series. In Be
a Detective series, the program will focus on helping your child develop selfmonitoring
of his / her social behaviours in a fun and interactive way.
Some fun concepts used in the program are based on the Social Thinking Curriculum
by Michelle Garcia Winner, which includes how to be a social detective, making smart
guesses and learning about a superhero – called SUPERFLEX – on how he defeats a
team of “Unthinkable” (a variety of unexpected behaviours). At the same time, your
child will learn to work as a team with peers while doing various activities together.
On top of that, the lessons will also help your child gain practical emotional
regulation strategies to cope in triggering situations when arises.
The first series will consist of ten 1-hour sessions with interactive activities and
reviews of introduced concepts, in order to provide your child with multiple
opportunities to practise the learnt social strategies. Parents will also be brief on the
lesson concepts to ensure carry over of knowledge and generalization of skills to
everyday life for your child. The group will be facilitated by qualified and trained
therapists.
