Pre-Teen Life Skills Group Pointe-Claire Starts July 14th Outremont: Coming Soon
This Kiddo Active Life Skills Group is designed to provide an opportunity for pre-teens to engage in fun activities with similar aged peers while developing social skills, executive functioning skill and specific life skills. We will slowly build on the skills that are practiced throughout adolescence. The group will be led by an occupational therapist who designs and modifies every activity for each participants ability, needs and goals so that everyone experiences success and goal achievement. The group will decide on an outing they would like to do at the end of the 6 weeks, and each week they will engage in learning activities towards planning that activity.
These are some of the skills that will be introduced and practiced this summer:
How to make a group plan that can accommodate the needs of and interests of the group.
How to plan for and get to and from activities using public transportation when supervised.
How to research on the internet or by phone call in order to find, plan and execute the group activity.
Introduction on how to use smart phone apps for good – time management, planning, organizing, communicating with parents and friends, etc.
Phone etiquette – communication with the group as well as reaching out in the community through text and voice.
Planning and organizing as part of a group – including leadership and active participation in the group.
Important hygiene and personal management topics will be covered as they pertain to the group and the planned activities.
Budgeting and money management.
This group is for both new and existing Kiddo Active clients and requires a screening or evaluation for group placement.

Additional Information to consider:
Each teen will likely have need of pocket money for the final outing/activity. It is our hope that the teens will learn to respect their budget and how to earn their pocket money towards a goal each week as this is an important life skill.
Each family will be given a questionnaire for the parents and another for the pre-teen to fill out when they register – allowing the therapist to understand the child’s strengths, weaknesses and goals.
The group format will be adjusted to meet the needs of the individuals that register, unless the group format is not ideal for one of the teens.
