• Social skills groups - 3 x 60 min groups over 8 weeks at three different locations (one per week at Tweed, Kingscliff and Pottsville). This will be with an OT and one of the Key Workers from Shaping Outcomes. Will be assisting to run the group, and taking notes of observations for the team to report back to parents each week.
• Pre-school programs - These are run by the Shaping Outcomes Key Workers and run for 6 weeks at various locations during term 2 (Banora, Tweed, Kingscliff, Pottsville, Condong). These groups focus on play skills and social interactions, as well as some basic school readiness activities. There is a significant focus on parent support during these groups, and the Key Workers often meet with the parents (separate to the children) to discuss concerns and to support where they can).
