Our Social Skills groups are returning in 2017.  Our schedule is set out below.  If you would like to put  your child’s name down for any upcoming group please do so by contacting our Family Liason Officer Leah de Lacey who will in turn contact you closer to the time with a registration form.

The Group will consist of a range of fun, engaging activities created by The Dublin Adult and Child Therapy Centre’s Occupational Therapist and Speech and Language Therapist.  These activities have been carefully selected to work on the target areas of the group such as your child’s fine and gross motor skillsm language, communication and social involvement.  Each child will receive a daily feedback form on the areas targeted and the child’s progress in the selected task.

On the first day of the group your child will receive a folder where they can keep materials from the group.  Carry over materials and activities will also be given to the children in their folder so ensure they bring it with them each day.
