What’s New At Family Achievement Center?
Social Superheroes and Zones of Regulation Summer Group
This summer, an exciting opportunity is taking place using The Zones of Regulation by occupational therapist Leah M. Kuypers and Social Thinking by speech language pathologist Michelle Garcia Winner. This camp will introduce clients to our superhero, Superflex, who teaches us to have flexible thinking as we take on Rockbrain and the Team of Unthinkables! We will learn to keep our bodies “in the green zone” and strategies to use if they move into the yellow or red zones. The Superheroes group will focus on understanding social norms (engaging others, eye contact, answering and asking questions, making friends) and will broaden skills to increase appropriate interactions with others (having appropriate reaction size, how to not be too competitive, allowing others to make play choices, staying with a group, focusing on a group task or conversation). This camp will include ample opportunities for peer interactions during engaging social activities to work on reading facial expressions, emotions, solving social problems, determining how their actions affect those around them, and demonstrating expected social behaviors.
