Social Skills Classes
Building Buddies social skills classes are aimed at children aged 4-11 who have difficulty engaging with peers.
Classes run for 6 weeks and last 1 hour.
A social skills assessment is carried out in week 1 to identify the areas of need for each child.
Children are then reassessed in week 5 to demonstrate how they have progressed.
Every week games are designed to target a key area of social development. Children are encouraged to take part and turn take with peers.
When applicable, a homework activity is provided to parents to give them the opportunity to practice what is targeted in group.
I have seen huge improvement with my childs social interactions with kids outside of Building Buddies.
My child has had a fantastic time at Building Buddies. Joanne has been great with him and made him feel at ease
My two children very much enjoyed Building Buddies. Overall this has been a great programme and very beneficial
I think Building Buddies has provided a fanstastic service at an extremely reasonable cost and most importantly, not only has my child progresssed, he has had an absolute ball. He looks forward to coming each week. The staff are so friendly and approachable and the course materials help us continue the learning at home. Many thanks for everything
As a parent I would like to take part in some of the classses to get a better idea of what you are doing so I could practice this at home
Honestly have nothing but praise for Building Buddies and the staff. This was our second course at Building Buddies and it helped cement my childs learning from the first session, and helped his confidence grow too. I can't recommend it highly enough and am very greatful for the work of Joanne and her team.
I can see such an improvement in school and other social settings
