Kicking Goals Group Program
We are running our very first ‘Kicking Goals Group Program’ these April school holidays for all children 9 – 12 years old.
There will be 3 group sessions focusing on coaching children and their families on how to apply strategies to improve a child’s performance in tasks that impact on their daily lives and will be facilitated by our Occupational Therapist Tatum Dann.
Cognitive Orientation to Daily Occupational Performance, also known as CO-OP, is an evidenced based, client centred and performance-based problem solving approach that enables children to learn new or improve on their current skill set.
A key component of the CO-OP is that the child chooses the goal and is therefore motivated to complete it.
🌟Participants will develop an understanding of the global strategy of CO-OP :
A large component of CO-OP – Goal, Plan, Do, Check – is to provide supports to perform an activity, remind you to check if the activity is carried out correctly and if the plan worked well.
- Goal – What do I want to do/achieve?
- Plan – How am I going to do it? (Task analysis – breaking down the task into small steps / stages)
- Do – Carry out the task
- Check – How well did my plan work? (Involves the child self-evaluating and guided discovery)
- The activities in each session will be tailored to the needs of your child and will help them to extend their skills learnt in the school environment.
🌟Children will learn:
Children will learn skills that will assist them in more capably completing daily tasks and activities that they may find challenging. This might be something at school such as handwriting or a new trick that they are finding difficult to accomplish on their scooter. It is a fun and easy to learn approach that children will be able to tailor to different situations to assist them in increasing their confidence and ability to problem solve.
The 3 session group costs only $210 (which works out to be $70 per session).
NDIS funding, Private Health or Medicare funding may be available to use for the group payment. You will need to check with your provider.
***PARTICIPANTS MUST REGISTER FOR THE FULL 3 GROUP SESSIONS AS WE WILL BUILD ON MATERIALS AND CONCEPTS OVER THE THREE SESSIONS.
50% payment is due upfront to secure your child’s place in the group with the remaining balance payable by the end of the first week – Sunday 17th April.
