Social Skills and Social Thinking Group

Our social skills group focuses on a play/activity based approach to work on social and communication skills along with a thematic structure for every term.

Valuable friendship and cooperative skills form a core principle in our social skills groups and while meaningful friendships are formed, children are also learning to understand social relationships and meanings. Every child will have a carefully tailored program with target skills to work on during social group.

​Incorporating Michelle Garcia Winner’s award-winning programme “Social Thinking” into our programme, we aim to support children’s development in Social-Cognitive and Social Communication abilities.
