Searching for Social Clues – July School Holiday Program

Hurry places are filling fast.

Firstchance is excited to announce a new school holiday social skills program that is proudly sponsored by Orica.

This small group program enables school aged children with a disability or development delay to develop their emerging social skills by using an engaging comic book themed approach. This is done through the use of video modelling, role play, practice with other children, fun games and other specially designed techniques to assist children to enhance their social skills. This program incorporates the book You Are A Social Detective written by Michelle Garcia Winner and Pamela Crooke.

 

This program will take place over two weeks:

  • Tuesday 4/07/2017, Wednesday 5/07/2017
  • Tuesday 11/07/2017, Wednesday 12/07/2017

This program isn’t just for your child, a parent/carer is required to attend with their child to observe in order to continue to support their child to be Social Detective when we are not around.

 

The social skills group is aimed at developing:

  • Social skills
