Kids in Action
help young children with ASD learn how to take the appropriate ‘actions’ in a group setting.
What is about
We have learned that the pandemic has had a significantly negative impact on the social skills of many learners with ASD regardless of their age. Therefore, it is our faith to keep up with helping learners with ASD in building up the missing social blocks.
‘Kids in Action’ group will be designed to help young children with ASD learn how to take the appropriate ‘actions’ in a group setting. Action can include a lot of behaviours like sitting in a circle time, joining in a group table/floor activity, following the learning routines, etc.
The session structure will have different routines including social circle time, group activity, art&craft, the individual learning time, and learning circle time. In the social circle time, the learners will learn different social skills with the social stories, scenarios, media, and the Kahoot. In the individual learning time, each learner will have the mission board to complete for individualized tasks at the learner’s appropriate level for the early literacy and numerical skills. The group activity time will consist of a variety of activities such as experiments, team artworks, interactive books, group game, and so on. The learning circle may be included for the common learning goals for all learners; the possible goals can be the basic phonics or the different cognitive terms.
