A social skills enrichment program run by Autism SA.
Is your child aged 8 to 13 years old with Asperger Syndrome?
Do you want your child to be part of a group where they can improve their ability to think and interact socially?
“What’s the buzz?” is a 16 lesson role-play and play-based program, designed to assist children to gain insight into social situations.
Autism S is now looking for registered young people aged between 8 and 13 with Asperger Syndrome to make up two social skills groups (ages 8-10 and 11-13) that will be run bt trained group facilitators. The aims of this project are to enrich social interactions, build self-esteem and a sense of community in all participants. The group will offer opportunities for these children to develop friendships, think and act pro-socially and develop communication skills in a fun and comfortable learning environment.
The group will be run weekly on a Tuesday evening at a cost of $50 and will be based in Hawthorn beginning on Tuesday 24 July 2012.
