Thriving Kids Squad is an early intervention group run jointly by Occupational Therapy Helping Children and Lindfield Speech Pathology. The program is designed to help preschoolers with their fine and gross motor development, coping skills, regulation and attention. Thriving Kids Squad also helps children develop their social and language skills through activities that encourage thinking, laughing and learning together.
The group focuses on children’s school readiness skills, sensory regulation development, and social play & communication skills.
- School readiness skills Fine motor skills, concentration, following directions, taking turns and sharing
- Sensory regulation /sensorimotor skills Gross motor regulation play, problem solving, coping skills
- Social play and communication skills Playing with their peers, imaginary pretend play, social thinking, expressive vocabulary, early language and concepts This group is flexible to ensure that the needs of all participants are met. Our goal is to not only help your child develop skills, but help them believe they can accomplish their goals. NB: Similarly to Leaping Into School, this page does not require a sub-section paragraph before the locations/dates are listed (unlike the Handwriting or Social Skills holiday groups).
