Social Learning groups are a way for students to explore and apply their knowledge and learn new skills in a supportive friendship-driven group setting. Key social skills, including Social ThinkingTM, emotional regulation and executive functioning concepts will be taught through the use of games, group activities and projects, role playing, and other preferred activities of interest (“Experience-Based Learning). These weekly sessions will also provide opportunities for the students to generalize their social thinking skills and emotional regulation skills to other less structured settings. These groups will take place through contracted schools and Tuesdays After-School, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and the registration form.
We will be working on:
- Active listening and non-verbal communication.
- Identifying ‘Expected’ and ‘Unexpected’ behaviours in different situations
- Watching their surroundings & using context to make ‘smart guesses’ about what is expected in social and community situations
- Understanding the thoughts, feelings and intentions of others
- Social communication
- Emotional Regulation (identifying the size of a problem and working towards matching their reaction)
- Organization and Executive Functioning which includes Attention and Focus
- Flexible thinking and problem solving
- And much, much more!
Who can participate:
- Individuals between the ages of 3 to adulthood who benefit from support with interacting and socializing with others.
- For new clients, an individual session will be required prior to groups beginning to determine needs and goals.
