Minds At Play - Minecraft Making friends and having fun, a social group program

2022 TERM 1 WAITLIST NOW OPEN

Use the form below to register for our Minecraft program commencing 2022.

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.

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 skills – helping your child make friends, greet others, 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.
