Clinicians will support the children to learn new skills, or master developing skills, such as:

– kicking, throwing, catching and bouncing a ball with peers

– following the rules of a game (e.g. sports, board games, social games)
– turn-taking with peers
– following instructions of increasing length and complexity
– understanding varying language concepts

– being a good team player.

This program is suitable for pre-school and school-aged children who can follow instructions and/or imitate an adult’s demonstration of actions within a group setting.
