It’s never a one-size-fits-all solution when you are at Scope.
Making friends can be tricky, especially when you find it hard to recognise the social cues and emotions of others.
Scope’s Secret Agent Society Program helps kids 8 to 12 years of age crack the code of emotions and friendships. This is specially designed to help kids develop essential social skills.
It uses engaging tactics like spy games and missions to help kids identify negative or unhelpful thoughts, and then equips them with strategies to get rid of those thoughts. It also helps kids to identify other people’s feelings – which is so important when you’re trying to make friends.
The program also provides parents with a summary of what children learn in the program and tips on how they can help their child use these skills in everyday life.
Meet Hugo – Scope’s newest agent
Nine-year-old Hugo is one of Scope’s newest ‘Agent’s’ in our Secret Agent Society program.
Since being involved in the Secret Agent Society, Hugo has learnt how to calm himself down using relaxation and mindfulness strategies. There has been a great improvement in his ability to understand other children in the playground and make connections and friends.
Hugo is now equipped with the skills to feel happier, calmer and braver while making new friends and keeping them.
