Sensational Kids offers social skills groups for children as part of our therapy programs. Two types of groups programs run including:

Social skills groups: These small groups are designed for children who have difficulty with social or general anxiety, social interaction, attention and a poor sense of self. These groups focusses on development of self-esteem, friendships, and social confidence in a supportive environment through both structured and unstructured activities.

Social dyads: Dyads consists of two children matched for approximate age and developmental levels with one therapist (either a Psychologist, Speech Therapist or Occupational Therapist). The dyad is an unstructured, naturalistic interaction with the therapist guiding and supporting the children to help develop robust social communication skills including sharing, turn-taking, seeing things from other's points of view, use of appropriate social language and gestures and development of friendships. Dyads are great for children who may not yet be ready for larger groups or for those needing the opportunity to consolidate specific skills learnt in one-on-one therapy in a functional, supportive environment.
