Neptune

1 SPOT LEFT

Program Objective: 

 

The Neptune Group is the entry-level of the intermediate groups. It aims to build upon the foundational social skills acquired in the Earth Social Group, empowering elementary school children to navigate more complex social dynamics. The objective is to guide students in refining their abilities to engage in advanced conversations, navigate intricate peer interactions, and solve group problems more independently. Learners will develop proficiency in sophisticated behaviors such as nuanced reciprocal conversations, managing constructive criticism, addressing more subtle forms of teasing and bullying, enhancing cooperative play, and deeply respecting diverse interests. The program focuses on fostering common learning goals that promote advanced social skills within a group setting. We aim to enhance these concepts through social stories, advanced role-playing, video modelling, natural environment play, and the Everyday Speech curriculums. Individualized support continues through personalized goals, tailored to each learner's unique challenges. The program includes dynamic group activities such as intricate games, complex projects, and deep reciprocal conversations, ensuring participants not only learn but confidently apply these vital social skills in increasingly challenging real-life scenarios. The Neptune Group is committed to nurturing socially adept and confident young individuals, equipped with the skills necessary for successful social interactions at the intermediate level.

Measurement:

 

The measurement for the Neptune Group is designed to assess the development of advanced social skills in participants comprehensively. Through observational assessments, the program evaluates understanding of complex perspectives during role-playing and group discussions. Communication assessments gauge the progress of advanced self-advocacy and constructive communication skills, while problem-solving exercises assess nuanced conflict resolution and problem-solving awareness. Social interaction assessments focus on the ability to initiate, build, and maintain deeper peer relationships during group activities. Non-verbal communication proficiency is evaluated through detailed exercises, and tactful communication assessments measure the ability to express opinions constructively. Finally, teamwork evaluation assesses the development of advanced collaborative skills through intricate group projects, games, and activities. This multifaceted approach ensures a comprehensive understanding of each participant's social growth within the Neptune Group. A detailed report will be provided to parents at the end of the term.
