Calling All Secret Agents!
Aurora Regional Services is putting out a call for new cadets to join the Secret Agent Society (SAS).
SAS is an innovate multi-media program designed to empower children to crack the code of emotions and friendship to reach their full potential.
Through espionage themed computer games and small group workshops, participants between the ages of 8 – 12 years, undertake secret agent training – learning to how to detect and manage their emotions and develop the skills to maintain friendships.
“It’s a really fun interactive and engaging way for children with autism, ADHD, anxiety or general challenges in maintaining friendships to learn new skills. I don’t think I know a child who doesn’t like computer games, and the stuff we do in session is pretty cool” said Christine Coates, Clinical Director at Aurora Regional Services.
Using board games, walkie talkies, computer games and workbooks – we learn how to detect clues and solve puzzles. We learn how to recognise emotions in others through face, voice and body clues. We have fun whilst developing the confidence to make and keep friends through teamwork and problem solving. Learning how to manage and prevent things such as bullying, and teasing are also covered.
“This program has a solid evidence base, in improving children’s social and emotional skills” said Christine “and it is not just for children, there are also workshops for parents, and resources for teachers so that everyone is on the same page”
Aurora Regional is a new Disability Service, providing Counselling, Positive Behaviour Support and Support Coordination to NDIS participants in regional NSW including the Bathurst region, Griffith and the Mid North Coast.
