What is involved?

This group centres around a 10 week Dungeons and Dragons (tabletop role playing game) campaign – beginners and seasoned players welcome!  D&D is a classic role playing game with a huge global following and can be a great life-long avenue for some kids to ‘find their people’.   All supplies provided, no experience necessary.  Certified Teacher and Executive Function specialist Dan Zaitzow will guide participants through the game as they develop and practice of a range of social problem solving skills including:

  • Regulating emotions as gameplay rolls out
  • Managing through distress and conflict when decisions are made within the game that aren’t popular
  • Perspective-taking through imaginary characters and theoretical situations as well as in real life with the other players
  • Communicating clearly with others to discuss strategy, negotiate, compromise and set boundaries
  • Flexible thinking, adapting to a constantly changing situation, transitioning
  • Building relationships
