OT facilitated paired play dates

We are trialling a new group program these coming holidays. Parents often report how challenging it can be arranging play dates for their children, but know how important it is in order for them to practice their social skills, or be exposed to collaborative play opportunities. These coming holidays we have decided to trial small group sessions with 1 OT supporting play between 2 children of similar age and social learning stage. This also means we have flexibility to tailor the session to work on more individual goals. We are only offering 6 of these groups as a pilot and will be based on expression of interest, so we can ensure we pair children who will be well suited and therefore gain something from the session, therefore the time you are allocated might vary. Each pair will have 2 sessions (e.g. Monday and Wednesday at 9:30 am). The first session will be with the children and the OT (no parents) to support independence, and the second session will be the parents observing (if appropriate), so there is an opportunity to learn and ask questions.

Possible session times:
These will be allocated by Kid Link (in consultation with families where
possible) once pairs are chosen.
9:30, 11:30 or 1:30, Monday and Wednesday
9:30, 11:30 or 1:30, Tuesday and Thursday

Total Cost:
$118 per child (includes 2 sessions)

Duration:
60 minutes per session

Ages:
We will take expressions of interest for children of any age. If we get two children who would benefit from being paired together, we will notify families.

Please express your interest to admin if you would like to enrol your child!
