Social Smart Group
Formerly called Kids Friendship Club (K.F.C.)
Social Smart Group is held at 10921 82 Avenue North Delta BC V4C 2B2
Reach created the Social Smart Group as a bridge to build opportunities for children with autism to develop and maintain friendships. The Social Smart Group links children with other children in the same age group to meet once a week for one to two hours for ten weeks. During that time, with the guidance and support of a clinical consultant and a behaviour interventionist, the Social Smart Group will play games, socialize, have outings, share snacks, make crafts, and participate in group discussions. The topics of the discussions are chosen to address social and emotional life and development.
Children in the Social Smart Group must be able to manage themselves safely and independently within a group of 4 children to 1 adult leader. Groups consist of 8 to 10 children.
"(Our son) was able to generalize and apply many of the skills he learned here into school and community. His teacher reports increased participation with peers and initializing at recess and lunch. We could really see more positive confidence performing at his piano recital and at gymnastics – thank you! "
