program inclusions​​

​​

  • Individual session - a 60 minute one to one intake session prior to the program to understand your child's needs, to identify whether the program is suitable for your child, and to answer questions related to the program.

  • Child group sessions - 11 x 90 minute weekly structured child group sessions that include various games and activities that teach emotion management and social skills.

  • Parent support sessions - a 30-40 minute parent session follows the child group session every week. This allows the facilitator to provide parents with advice and feedback on the session and how they can help their children to apply their SAS skills in real life. During this time, children use their skills during supervised informal play activities.

  • Teacher Support - ongoing communication with teachers so they can continue to support child's social and emotional learning at school.

  • Family Kit with all the resources required for the program (see what is included in the picture below). The kit includes the following:

​​

  • SAS Parent Workbook is used in parent sessions and provides parents with a lasting summary of what children learn in the program and tips on how they can help their child use these skills in everyday life.

  • The SAS Teacher Tip Sheet Pack is provided to teachers incrementally, aligned with the child’s progress through the program. This pack contains information sheets, and questionnaires to help school staff support children’s social skill development at school.

  • The SAS Cadet Handbook is used in sessions and at home to guide learning through the SAS group program. The Cadet Handbook includes large full-colour illustrations of new skills, group session activities, questions, home missions and a secret agent journal for recording how children use their SAS skills in real life.

  • The SAS Gadget Pack contains pocket-sized illustrated skill code cards, a code card holder, Emotionometers (emotion thermometers), sticker sheets, an ID tag, Fact File cards, invisible ink pen, Friendship Formula tube, stress ball, Skill Tracker cards and a graduation medal. These fun resources are introduced to children strategically through the program.

  • The SAS Drawstring Satchel Bag for kids to carry their resources to and from session.

  • Computer game access - The SAS Computer Game teaches children about recognising and regulating emotions and social skills through the theme of training as secret agents. The game is designed to engage children in the learning and practicing of social and emotional skills. It also provides an electronic platform for debriefing social situations and computer based home mission recording.

  • Weekly missions can be completed in the Secret Agent Journal section of the computer game. They can make pictures with speech and thought bubbles (similar to Comic Strip Conversations) to show how they used their social skills in real life.​

  • Certificates throughout the program for successfully engaging in activities and completing missions.

  • Rewards at the end of every session. Rewards are gadgets that can be used to help feel calm and happy.

  • An ID pass and lanyard.

  • Certificate for children upon completion of the program.
