Raising a child can be very rewarding, but it can also be extremely challenging. Some children find it difficult to understand their own emotions and those of others, to express their feelings in appropriate ways and have trouble making friends. The Secret Agent Society™ (SAS) social skills program creates a fun, non-threatening environment in which children can learn the skills they need to become happy, well-adjusted and valued members of our society.
This flexible program helps parents and professionals to improve children’s emotional understanding and social skills by teaching them:
The Secret Agent Society™ (SAS) social skills program is delivered via a 11-session group program by certified SAS Facilitators. The SAS Family Kit supports the skill development of families who participate in the Secret Agent Society™ program. This resource provides families with everything they need to participate in the SAS group social skills program and is purchased at the commencement of the program. This is designed to complement the program and to help improve their children’s emotional understanding and social skills at home and at school. The group-training program includes:
During the first 90 minutes of each group meeting, children learn emotion recognition, emotion regulation and social skills through fun games and activities. Meanwhile, parents discuss amongst themselves the successes and challenges they have faced in supporting their child to use their social skills in real life. For the remaining 30 minutes, children practice their social skills through informal play activities; while parents learn specific ways they can support their child’s social skill development.
The Secret Agent Society™ (SAS) social skills program upskills and empowers 8 to 12 year olds including those with High-Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorders (including Asperger Syndrome) and the adults who support them. The SAS group program consolidates and extends on the foundation skills taught using the Introductory SAS Resources. This comprehensive social skills program helps children reach their potential by building their emotional resilience and friendship skills.
