What: Confident Kids is a world-first group program designed to boost your child’s social skills in preparation for school, aimed at helping children to use their communication skills in a social group setting. Confident Kids focuses on building Theory of Mind and Social Skills. These include:
– The ability to take on another perspective and ‘put yourself in someone else’s shoes’
– Being able to make predications and inferences in communication
– Developing the use of ‘mental state’ language e.g. to think, know, wonder
– The importance of ‘overhearing’ to learn language and social rules
The development of these skills have been shown to be key predictors of social success as children learn how to use their language with friends.
TO CONFIRM your place in the group or if you have any questions any questions, please contact your Listening & Spoken Language Specialist or Danielle Lam on 9370 4403 or [email protected] by Friday 30th September.
