"we'll help your child make friends"
Ladybug House offers a range of groups for pre-school children aged 3-5 years throughout the year and for school aged children aged 6-8 years of age on school holidays . Groups are run in a multi disciplinary fashion.
These groups are aimed at children who have social, emotional, language and cognitive difficulties. Children are grouped together of similar age and language level. Children with language delays or disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder, attention difficulties or anxiety can display difficulties with social development.
Our group programs aim to help develop skills in the following areas:
- Following verbal instructions
- Turn taking
- Asking for help
- Initiating a conversation
- Co-operation and working in a team
- Winning and coping with losing
- Problem solving
- Topic maintenance
- Awareness and understanding of emotional literacy
- Understanding friendships & making friends
Our clinicians plan structured and unstructured activities to meet the needs of all children. We incorporate the use of the Social Thinking® framework, the Zones of Regulation® and the Superflex® program.
We are taking expressions of interest for our various programs. If you want to learn more please ask for Maria when you call 9331 0720 or complete the inquiry form below. We'll contact you within 24 hours.
