Benefits of Social Skills Fun Day

Children attending Social Skills Fun Day learn and practise skills to stay calm and centred by acknowledging and regulating their emotions in a play-based environment. They will participate in:

  • Lego Building with role playing
  • Card and Board games
  • Activities using sequences of movements designed to calm and moderate the nervous system

Not to mention making friends along the way. These simple techniques can be transferred to home and school life, opening the possibilities of a life without limits.
