I recently completed a very exciting course called the Secret Agent Society (SAS). It has an amazing success rate in improving social and emotional functioning. As a result I’m now an SAS Facilitator.
Indeed I’m currently the only SAS facilitator in Western Melbourne.
Why’s it so good? Well it’s a great way to help children gain social skills and using this method it’s easy to assess how children have done after the programme is finished. So you can really check up on the results. In addition the programme is always being updated to make it even better, which is amazing given that it already produces tangible results 70% of the time!
It works in small groups of three children with full support from occupational and speech therapists. Also it lets you access a great network of other people who are doing the programme to share ideas.
So what is the Secret Agent Society? Well it’s a really fun way to improve social and emotional skills for children between the ages of eight and twelve. It was created in Australia by clinical psychologist Dr Renae Beaumont and is regarded as one of the most successful programmes of its kind in the world.
It has four main games to take part in, an animated “secret agent” computer game with Agent Ardon, a Helpful Thought Missile action game, the Challenger board game and a Secret Message Transmission game. The sum of all these parts is to create a fun and captivating environment in which to learn new social skills.
If you think your child could benefit from the programme please get in touch and I’ll take you through how we can go about getting started
