Freedom Social Skills Provides Holiday Camps, Social Skills Groups and Behavioural Intervention services to children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other developmental or learning disabilities.
Social Skills Groups:
In-Clinic Social Skills Groups for Children and Adolescents (Ages 4 – 18)
With classes tailored for primary or high school students our Social Skills activities focus on developing the skills needed to form and maintain positive relationships and long-lasting friendships. Through a variety of fun and engaging activities the students learn important social skills such as sharing, turn taking, perspective taking and understanding emotions.
Sports Class (Ages 6 – 12)
Our Sports Groups are run at a local sporting facility. These small and inclusive groups allow our students to develop their gross motor skills and teamwork skills in a safe environment. We practice a variety of sports such as soccer, tennis and Oztag. We also play a variety of fun active games to develop coordination and agility.
Online Minecraft Social Skills (Ages: 6 – 12)
Minecraft Social Skills provides a safe online environment where students meet together with the class facilitator each week. Every week there is a social skills activity which the students complete together. After this the students jump into our private Minecraft server and participate in teamwork and creative building challenges.
Our holiday camps are designed to target social skills and friendship skills development through a variety of fun activities. Each day has a different theme.
We have Lego, Dungeons and Dragons, Arts and Crafts, Film Makers, Science, and STEM Construction sessions.
