Social Skills Training Programs (SSTP)
The Gold Foundation delivers Social Skills Training Programs for children and young people diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, aged between 6 – 16 years old.
We facilitate our Social skills training programs in small groups, dependent on the age and needs of participants. The programs run for one hour per week for 16 weeks, across two terms. The weekly sessions consist of 8-10 children of approximately the same age. Each program is delivered by two professionally trained educators who have been carefully sourced and selected.
What’s the Buzz? A social skills enrichment program for primary students is a unique social thinking program that encourages children to think about how to get along with others and explore the benefits of developing new social skills. What’s the Buzz? is targeted at young people aged 6 – 12 years.
This highly structured, role-play and play-based program is designed to teach children how to think socially and make friendship work. The program engages children into feeling friendship together, it encourages them to see it, taste it, smell it and laugh with each other. It connects young people and offers them the skills to belong.
What’s the Buzz? is delivered through direct teaching, role-play, quizzes and fun in the context of an encouraging group.
You Can Do It! Education’s core purpose is the development of young people’s social and emotional capabilities, including the five foundations: confidence (academic, social), persistence, organisation, getting along, and emotional resilience. You Can Do It! is ideal for young people 12 to 16 years.
Central to the development of these 5 Foundations is instilling in young people 12 Habits of the Mind that support and foster the 5 Foundations, including Accepting Myself, Taking Risks, Being Independent, I Can Do It, Giving Effort, Working Tough, Setting Goals, Planning My Time, Being Tolerant of Others, Thinking First, Playing by the Rules, and Social Responsibility (includes the values of Caring, Doing Your Best, Freedom, Honesty, Integrity, Respect, Responsibility, Understanding, Tolerance, and Inclusion).
YCDI focuses on building social, emotional, and motivational capacity of young people rather than on their problems and deficits. It encourages prevention, promotion, and intervention efforts (school, home and community) in order to build the social and emotional strengths of young people – a strength building approach.
