The Advanced Social Skills Group Program is for senior primary school aged girls and boys.  The Friday after school program is a mixed gender program.  The Saturday 1pm program is an all boys group.  This program allows the group members to utilise all of the social and emotional regulation skills that they have learnt to date, and continue to learn, in order to work together to design and experience the perfect program for them. 

Road Trip is our long standing Teen group program, designed to build the advanced social skills, group decision making skills and food etiquette that teenagers need when socialising with friends and peers. This year, Road Trip will also include the optional experience and skill set for initiating and organising group outings.
