SATURDAY FUN CLUB
Time: 10:00 am – 11:45 am
This program is for children who have conversational skills, are able to remain in a designated area and attend to group instructions without one on one support from an adult. The purpose of the group is to provide opportunities for the children who have knowledge of basic social skills to enhance their social experiences through active and experiential learning in a small group setting.
The goals for this group will be drawn from the following social skill areas based on the Club members’ learning needs:
Social Awareness - learning who are around me, how do I act in the group?
Social Communication – responding to and initiating social invitations
Social Interactions – initiating and maintaining play activities & learning reciprocity in interactions
Social Learning - learning to learn from others, what are my peers doing?
Social Relatedness - tolerating peer presence, fostering interest and engagement
