Making friends and having fun, a social group program

Minds at Play recognises the challenges often associated with engaging children, youth, and adults with disabilities. Our participants get to have a positive social experience while playing fantasy-based role-playing games, in a safe environment.

Available for ages 6 and up, this program has been developed to build confidence in a range of social and communication skills. Each player has a specific role, and they work together as a team to build a model while practising other vital skills such as sharing, listening, joint attention, and problem-solving.

They’ll have fun, explore their creativity and interact with others in a supported digital environment.

What we’ll work on

  • Collaboration – by working as a group to achieve a common goal
  • Joint problem-solving, sharing, and turn-taking – taking turns in different roles, working on the build together
  • Maintaining attention – staying focused on the task to build the models
  • Verbal and non-verbal communication – using language and text skills to express ideas and feelings
  • Creativity – in building the models and free playtime
  • Social growth – helping your child make friends, greet others, and develop sharing and turn-taking skills.
  • Conflict resolution – working through differences for a shared aim
  • Emotional development – learning to understand and talk about emotions (their own and other people’s), conflict resolution, and problem-solving skills.
  • Communication and literacy skills – expanding vocabulary around social and emotional development, increasing literacy skills and language development through peer activities.
