What is involved?

New format for 2022-23!  Social Sunday programs are now planned in six-week blocks throughout the school year.  All the groups are designed to provide a supported setting to build and practice social skills, while also working more explicitly on a targeted set of skills or a therapeutic theme.  Click on the links below to find out more about each program:

Why would we join?

  • You, a teacher, or a doctor may have noticed that your child could benefit from focused social skills training in a supported setting
  • Your child may be struggling with social anxiety or expected group behaviour
  • You may be looking for a positive, empowering space for your child to learn and practice various life skills that aren’t sit-down therapy and includes lots of action and outdoor time
  • You might be looking for a way to help your child with perspective-taking and finding their way through non-preferred tasks
  • Your household may be juggling some higher needs, and could use a program where you know your kids will be safe and supported for a few hours on a Sunday while learning some valuable social, emotional, and executive function skills!
  • Your child may have been working 1:1 with a coach on foundational pro-social skills and they’re ready to put them into practice in a group setting
