Voice Within offers social skills groups for children to work facilitate social and language interactions within a small group. Our social skills groups aim to better equip children with the skills required to:

  • Understand and consider the thoughts and feelings of themselves and others
  • Attend and listen
  • Initiate and maintain conversations
  • Regulate their behaviour when in a group
  • Cooperatively play and learn with others
  • Negotiate and compromise
  • Relate socially and develop solid foundations of how to make and maintain friends

The group configuration is organised not only on the age/grade of the children but also after careful assessment of their current social cognitive abilities.

Activities can comprise a number of the following:

  • Introduction of a new vocabulary around relating socially
  • Tasks requiring attention and focus
  • Understanding verbal and non-verbal cues
  • Social problem-solving activities
  • Conversation practice
  • Understanding of the Zones of Regulation and relating them to ourselves and different contexts
  • A variety of games and/or craft activities

Examples of Social Skills Groups include:

  • Pre School Group
  • School Readiness Group
  • Lower Primary Group
  • Upper Primary Group

Kindly contact the clinic for expressions of interest regarding current and future groups. 

We look forward to hearing from you.
