Why choose the Social Skills Program?
This program assists in the development of social skills and social problem-solving strategies while also promoting self-esteem and self-advocacy in a supportive environment. The aim of the program is to encourage friendship, positive social/emotional behaviours, active listening, effective communication, and understanding of social norms, among many other social skills.
Once a week, these skills will be taught through group discussion, play-based activities, team building games, and role-playing, and children will benefit from working together with other children that have similarities to them. Children will also be given “Home Skills” to further practice these new skills outside of our weekly sessions.
Who is the program designed for?
Children diagnosed with a Learning Disability and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) who may avoid social contact, behave immaturely, be shy or timid in groups, frequently fight with peers, display a lack of self-esteem and self-confidence, and enjoy meeting other children with LD and/or ADHD
