Flexible Play - Kitchener - BSS Social Skills Group

In the Flexible Play group, our experienced Instructor Therapists will create a safe and fun environment where children will learn to play pretend with others through the support of play scripts. Children will learn to role-play and to take turns playing different roles. Children will learn to be “flexible” with friends, compromise, and continue to play along as friends take the lead in their own role. Children will learn how to handle when a friend plays in a way that was not expected. Using flexible thinking strategies, they will generate new ways to solve problems, adapt to changes in play and adjust to the unexpected. Families will receive a summary of recommendations outlining the strategies developed through each week of group to continue to apply your learning in other settings. By registering for this group, you are committing to attending all session dates.

To improve social and play skills through:

  • Behaviour Skills Training on topics (instruction, modelling, rehearsal, feedback)
  • Prompting and reinforcement to teach priority goals each session
  • Data collection to assess acquisition of priority goals

Group Goals:

  • Inviting others to play and accepting invitations to join play
  • Work together to choose activities, compromise and taking turns
  • Following a play script to support with taking on roles within the pretend play activity
  • Learning about being fair, winning and losing, coping strategies and good friend behavior
  • Solving problems that come up in play situations
Dates: Thursday evenings 4:30-6:30 for 10 weeks from January 26th to March 30th, 2023.
