Small group clubs are 90 minutes a week and run for 5 weeks. Clubs are held one weekday after school and two on Saturday mornings.
Maximum number of participants is 5, allowing lots of room in the playroom and on the equipment for sensory breaks as well as individual time for learning as needed.
Each participant receives a booklet with the topic information to use at the club and bring home for homework. Each club focuses on a different lesson, many of them are based on social and communication skills while others focus on academic skill building.
The lesson is taught in a group format where participants learn from each other but the real learning happens at home when the kids talk to their parents about what they have learned and practice the new strategies at home.
At every club the kids spend some time at the table as a group and the learning is intermixed with many sensory breaks so the participants can maintain or get their thinking back to a Brain 1. All learning styles are accommodated and supported and all lessons have visuals as part of the teaching.
Clubs are beneficial for the topic learning. Also, for kids who need to learn how to be in a group and have success. The ground rules are always respect and kindness to each other.
